N.H. man accused of stabbing yells during arraignment in court

A New Hampshire man accused of stabbing two people and setting fire to multiple buildings started yelling during his arraignment in a district court as the judge tried to set his bail on Tuesday.

Anthony Boisvert, a 27-year-old resident of Lebanon, was charged by police with stabbing two people and setting fire to three buildings, including a church. According to prosecutors, Boisvert intentionally started fires at the First Baptist Church and two other buildings in Lebanon on Dec. 28, 2016.

The 3-alarm fire destroyed much of the church, and a firefighter had to be taken to a hospital for a minor injury after he slipped on ice during the firefighting.


Last Sunday night, police received a 911 call about a stabbing that took place at the Boulder’s Condominium complex, which is located at 20 Wolf Road. The two victims were identified as a 52-year-old man and a 66-year-old woman.

Boisvert fled the scene after stabbing the two elderly people, but police managed to arrest him a short time later. Both victims are expected to survive.

Charged with two counts of first-degree assault and three counts of arson, Boisvert appeared in the court without a lawyer. Prosecutors said his charges could be raised to attempted murder. Currently, he is behind the bars with his bail set at $500,000.
