FRANKLIN - New details are emerging in an alleged assault in Northfield over the weekend.
Hunter Pescinski, 22 of Tilton, appeared in district court by video Tuesday morning. Pescinski is charged with felony first-degree assault and misdemeanor drug possession.
Pescinski is accused of repeatedly hitting Charles Eisenhower with his fist and a sliding van door, causing serious trauma to Eisenhower's head Saturday morning.
Eisenhower is in critical condition at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, said Christina Brooks, assistant Merrimack County attorney.
Pescinski pleaded not guilty to the drug possession charge on Tuesday but could not enter a plea for the assault charge because it's a felony.
Brooks said Pescinski has a limited criminal record for possession of marijuana and alcohol by a minor. Piscinski has requested a court-appointed attorney.
Pescinski is being held on $201,000 bail and has a probable cause hearing scheduled for 1 p.m. on Monday to determine whether to bound the assault charge over to Superior Court.
If he makes bail, he has been ordered to stay away from the victim - as well as two other people who witnessed the alleged attack.
