Dover police say 38 year old Antonio J. Hector is charged with Second Degree Assault for punching a woman in the face  just after 2 am in the Women and Children's Unit at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. Police say Hector fled the scene and made his way to Planet Fitness a short distance away. There,  he allegedly took keys from a locker and stole a vehicle from the parking lot.

That vehicle was later involved in a pursuit with police in Kittery, Maine that was discontinued. The vehicle was found crashed and abandoned a short time later.

Hector was arrested in Kittery several hours later and faces charges there. He is being held as a Fugitive from Justice and is awaiting extradition back to NH to face the Assault and Theft charges.
