Tilton store manager beaten & robbed

TILTON — Police are continuing to investigate what they are calling the brutal beating of a female store manager Sunday night at the West Main Shopping Plaza.

Chief Robert Cormier said the victim was walking out of the Dollar Tree store at 8:21 p.m. when she was attacked by a male who was dressed in black and wearing a mask. The bandit then fled with the night deposit bag.

"From what we're learning, he hit her before she landed on the ground and continued to hit her while she was on the ground," Cormier said.

He said the victim was treated and released last night but is still undergoing tests to determine the extent of her injuries.

"As far as we're concerned, this is a first-degree assault on a victim who was not resisting," Cormier said.

Cormier said the assailant left the scene in a tan or gold colored SUV and headed toward Franklin.

He said police thing the robbery and subsequent assault was "planned to some degree."

Police are asking that anyone who was near the Tilton-Franklin line at around 8:30 p.m. Sunday or who has any information is asked to contact the Tilton Police at 286-4442 or the Crime Tip Line at 1-855-286-6565.
