Sex Assault Suspect Arrested After Lengthy Investigation

A registered sex offender is facing charges in New Hampshire in connection with two sexual assaults that allegedly happened more than three years ago.

Nashua police, along with Lebanon police and the U.S. Marshall Service, arrested 55-year-old Edward Goodwin of Lebanon on Friday.

Police began investigating Goodwin in 2014 after a juvenile victim under the age of 13 reported that she was inappropriately touched by the suspect at his home in Nashua.

In 2015, as the investigation continued, another juvenile victim came forward and said that Goodwin sexually assaulted him as well.

Goodwin had left the Nashua area during the time of these investigations. He was found and placed under arrest at his home in Lebanon.

He faces one charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault and one charge of felonious sexual assault.

He was held on $100,000 cash bail pending his arraignment on Friday. It is not clear whether he has an attorney.
