Massachusetts Man Accused of Trying To Drown Woman at Park in Seabrook, NH
A man from Massachusetts is accused of trying to drown a woman in the surf at a Seabrook, NH beach.
Christopher Omar Concepcion, 30, of Lowell, is accused of holding the woman under the water while they were involved in a physical altercation at Harborside Park on June 30. Court documents reveal other disturbing details.
According to Seabrook Police Department's police logs, law enforcement was called to the scene at about 10 p.m. on that Wednesday night. He was arrested at the park along Ocean Boulevard.
Concepcion is charged with attempted second-degree murder and could receive a life sentence in prison if he is convicted.
He is also charged with a Class A misdemeanor for stalking.
Prosecutors say that after Concepcion tried to drown the woman and she got a protective order from Rockingham County Superior Court on July 1 - the next day - he made contact with her through the telephone.
Concepcion has been indicted by a grand jury. The next step in the judicial process is for him to go through arraignment and pre-trial hearings.
He may also plead guilty to this crime or a lesser crime if prosecutors strike a bargain with him.
Concepcion is being held on no bail and is not bondable. There is no scheduled release date for him at this time.
