CRAFTSBURY — Police are looking for a 28-year-old Craftsbury man, who is facing numerous charges, including sexual assault.

On Saturday morning, police responded to a 911 hangup call from a residence in Craftsbury. They met with a victim who reported they had been assaulted by Nicholas Hill, with whom they shared a relationship of a domestic nature.

Police say Hill had fled just prior to police arrival in a vehicle.

A statement issued by Trooper Daniel Lynch reads:

“Subsequent investigation revealed Hill had committed the offenses of sexual assault, domestic assault, unlawful restraint/2nd deg, and aggravated D/C upon the victim at the residence around the time the call was received, also interfering with access to emergency services by taking the phone as the victim attempted to call 911.”

Police say he was also found to have operated a vehicle while his license was criminally suspended as he fled the residence.

At this time, Hill is wanted by State Police. A felony warrant for his arrest has been issued by Judge Robert Bent.

Police say anyone with information regarding Hill’s whereabouts should not approach him and is encouraged to contact police at (802) 334-8881.
