Man Arrested After Seabrook, NH Robbery That Left Woman Injured

A man has been arrested and charged in a robbery that left a woman injured in the parking lot of a New Hampshire Market Basket store, authorities confirmed Tuesday

Officials say a woman was loading groceries into her car at the Southgate Plaza in Seabrook Friday night when she was notified that a man had taken her wallet from her purse. When she confronted the suspect, the two got into a physical altercation and he ran to his vehicle to try to get away. Police say he punched her in the face.

The woman, who has not been identified, grabbed hold of the suspect's door in an attempt to stop him, but she was tossed off after the car sped up around a corner. She was taken to a nearby hospital with multiple injuries and has not been discharged yet.

The suspect was identified Monday as 40-year-old Freddy Poisson, whose last known address was in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Authorities said Poisson had been seen at a CVS on Monday, allegedly using the victim's credit card.

Seabrook Police said Tuesday that Poisson had been taken into custody in nearby Amesbury.
