Officers arrived on scene and spoke with a male identified as Benjamin Cass, age 30, of Lebanon, NH, who stated he was the victim and advised two male suspects left in a vehicle. A local “Be on the Lookout” was issued to surrounding police departments for the vehicle and two males.

Upon contacting the two other involved males and further investigation, it was discovered that Cass was the suspect and he was using the axe to intimidate the two other males. During their interactions, Cass had held the axe to one of the male’s neck and cut him, which resulted in a minor laceration. Cass then hid the axe in a trash can.

Cass was taken into custody and requested the services of a Bail Commissioner. While at the Police Department, Cass immediately violated one of his bail conditions set by the Bail Commission by trying to contact a female he was ordered to not have contact with. Cass was charged with First Degree Assault with a Deadly Weapon, a Class A Felony; Falsifying Physical Evidence, a Class B Felony; Unsworn Falsification, a Class M Misdemeanor; and Breach of Bail, a Class A Misdemeanor. Cass was transported to the Grafton County House of Corrections, pending arraignment on Monday, December 9, 2019 in the Grafton County Superior Court.
