Police Arrest Student Who Witnesses Say Acted Violently

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- A fight led to a stabbing at a Southern New Hampshire University dorm early Saturday morning.

The victim, Mark Hennessy, 19, of Hooksett, told police that Ronald Taggart, 19, of Hooksett, stabbing him in the hand. Following an investigation, authorities charged Taggart with second-degree assault.

While working a private detail for the college, Manchester Police Reserve Officer Jim Ahern responded to a fight in the New Castle dorm.
Police reports indicate Taggart became upset when he said someone knocked on his door "very loudly." Witnesses said Taggart left his room armed with a knife and acting violently.

At that point, Hennessy tried to subdue Taggart by giving him a bear hug, at which time, he was stabbed in the hand, police said.

An ambulance treated Hennessey at the scene and officers arrested Taggart.
