Newport Man Faces Multiple Charges After Burglary and Assault on LEO
A series of burglaries on Tuesday night led to the arrest of a Newport Man. Newport Police said they received reports of a male going through cars at Newport Village Apartments and when searching the area, they learned of an attempted entry at a Sunapee St. residence. While tracking the suspect, officers were called to burglaries near the Police Station and at Pinnacle Bait and Tackle on Sunapee St.
Newport Police and NH State Police went to Pinnacle Bait and Tackle and located the suspect matching descriptions from previous calls. Officers took 18-year old Ryan Gobin into custody after a brief struggle. Evidence found on Gobin linked him reports earlier in the evening.
During processing, Officer Titorenko was assaulted and choked by Gobin. Officer Titorenko received minor injuries and was treated and released for service by Newport Ambulance. Gobin was arraigned yesterday in Newport District Court for Attempted Burglary, Resisting Arrest/Detention, Simple Assault, Second Degree Assault, Theft by Unauthorized taking, and two counts of Breach of Bail.
Gobin’s previous bail was revoked and he is currently lodged at the Sullivan County House of Corrections without bail. Gobin’s probable cause hearing is scheduled for July 5th at 2:00 PM in Newport District Court.
Chief Burroughs thanks the residents who called and reported the suspicious activity last night. It was the real-time calls, which led to the timely arrest of Ryan Gobin.
