Walton Valentin arrested in New York

Boston MA

A Massachusetts man wanted for assaulting a woman in a New Hampshire motel two weeks ago was apprehended in New York on Thursday, police said.

Walton Valentin, 29, of Methuen, was found hiding in the bathroom of a deli on Anderson Avenue in the Bronx, police said.

He has been the subject of an intensive manhunt since the weekend by State Police and police in Lawrence, Andover, Methuen and Salem NH

Valentin is expected to face charges in New Hampshire in connection with the assault of a woman in a hotel room in Salem.

The woman told police the incident started in Lawrence when her boyfriend jumped into her car, held a gun to her stomach and threatened to kill her family in the Dominican Republic.

The woman said once they were in the motel room, the man pointed the gun at her and pulled the trigger but the gun jammed, police said. She was beaten and choked, and he later beat the woman with the firearm, police said.

Valentin will also face charges in Massachusetts in connection with assaults of the same woman in October, to include multiple counts of assault and battery, assault with a dangerous weapon, unlawful carrying of a firearm, violation of protective order and threats to commit a crime, as well as a single home invasion count, police said.
