Northfield assault victim still recovering, motive could revolve around police informant rumor
NORTHFIELD - A Tilton man waved his probable cause hearing after he was arrested for brutally assaulting a Northfield man and causing injury to his head.
Hunter Pescinski appeared in court to wave his probable cause hearing after police arrested him for using a van door to brutally beat Charles Eisenhauer.
“Unfortunately Tilton is not what it used to be,” said one resident who did not want to be identified but knew of the incident.
Court documents say the incident happened outside of what's listed as Eisenhauer's home. He is still in the hospital suffering from brain and head injuries.
“Drugs are bad around, here and I don’t know if that's what it's about,” said Tammy Raffaelly, of Tilton, referring to the Feb. 13. incident.
The Assistant County Attorney alluded to a possible motive for Pescinski.
Alledeglly, Pescinski thought Eisenhauer was an informant and that he had been passing information about his friends onto police.
Such an arrangement was never made, police said, but people in town are well aware of frequent activity that goes on at Pescinski's house.
“It’s like a drive-through window,” said one Tilton resident of Pescinski’s home. “At times you can actually watch some people walk up to the window, grab a bag and leave and you can’t see what’s in the bag but you know it's a drive through.”
Pescinski’s mother was in court but would not comment about the alleged drug activity at her home or comment about her son.
The case will now be moved to superior court.
