Somersworth, NH Man Wanted in Attempted Dover Rape Captured
A man who allegedly climbed into a woman's bed early Monday morning and attempted to sexually assault her was taken into custody after he was found hiding near the Dover Public Library.
Dover Police said Donald Levier, 35, of Somersworth broke into a New York Avenue residence around 1:10 a.m and made his way to the bedroom. The woman told the man to leave. After speaking with the victim an arrest warrant was issued.
An anonymous caller told Dover Police around 12:50 p.m. on Tuesday and said that based on a photo released by police to the media they saw Levier come out of the woods near the library on Locust Street. Several officers went to the area of the library. They found Levier hiding in the woods of a home on Nelson Street a block from the library.
Levier was taken into custody and formally charged with burglary and attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault. He is being held at the Strafford County House of Corrections and will be arraigned on Wednesday.
