MANCHESTER, N.H. – A man facing charges from an incident last week is now facing new charges after allegedly assaulting a nurse and a police officer.

Levi Coltey, 21, showed up at his parents’ house on Sunday, Oct. 27, punched his father, and attempted to get into the home through a window. Coltey later left the scene and was taken to the hospital after taking an unknown number of unspecified pills.

On Oct. 28, Coltey punched and scratched a police officer and on Oct. 29, he head butted a nurse in the face.

Coltey faces multiple charges of alleged simple assault, resisting arrest and burglary. He will be arraigned on the misdemeanor charges at Manchester Circuit Court and on the felony charges at Hillsborough County Superior court on Oct. 30.

Police are asking that he be held on preventative detention.

Anyone accused of a crime is innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law.
