Third Arrest in Connection with Assault Outside Families in Transition Shelter

Manchester Police have arrested a third person in relation to a violent assault that happened outside the Families in Transition Shelter last week.

On June 21, 2023, at approximately 12:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to Pine and Manchester Streets for a reported fight.

When officers arrived, the group had already dispersed, and an injured 39-year-old man was lying on the ground. The man was taken to a local hospital to be treated for serious injuries.

Witnesses told police that several people were involved in a physical fight, and as it continued, a female hit a male with a metal pipe multiple times before leaving the area.

Through the investigation, police viewed surveillance video and identified Richard Chaput, 56, of Manchester (no set address) as a participant in the altercation. Chaput can be seen hitting and kicking the victim.

Chaput was arrested and charged with Second Degree Assault, Simple Assault, and Riot. He is scheduled for arraignment this morning in Hillsborough Superior Court North.

Previous to this, Kalee Chaput, 32, and Harry Moy, 41, both of Manchester (no set address), were arrested and charged in connection with the incident. Chaput was charged with First Degree Assault (F), and Moy was charged with Simple Assault (M).
