Nathan Saben, who is alleged to have committed a series of armed carjackings and attempted carjackings in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, has been ordered to be held on bail of $100,000. The accused appeared in court on Friday to face the charges. The incident has caused much concern among the people, and the authorities are taking all necessary measures to ensure the safety of citizens. Saben’s case will be closely watched, and justice will be served in due course.
During his arraignment at Lowell District Court, Saben entered a plea of not guilty towards multiple charges. This followed his arrest, alongside his girlfriend Jessica Tirone, the day prior.
As per reports, Saben, who was a suspect in two separate carjackings, was spotted by the Massachusetts State Police along with his partner in Lawrence on Thursday morning. The couple was driving a stolen car, and when the troopers chased them, they continued for seven miles before eventually stopping in Dracut.
According to reports, Saben’s attempt to flee in a car was foiled when the tires blew out, forcing him to abandon the vehicle on Route 110. He was reported to be carrying a rifle at the time. Despite being pursued by law enforcement, Saben allegedly made another attempt to carjack another vehicle in a bid to escape.
According to a witness who spoke with WBZ-TV, Saben had a gun pointed to his own head when police tackled and arrested him. The incident resulted in Tirone’s arrest as well.
According to reports, the stolen Subaru that the suspects were driving had been taken at gunpoint from an elderly man in Alton, New Hampshire, on Wednesday morning. Prior to that incident, it was alleged that Saben had already carjacked a woman in Salem, New Hampshire, just hours earlier. The police further reported that the suspects had attempted to carjack two other individuals in Salem, but fortunately, the victims managed to escape unharmed.
According to reports, Nathan Saben was initially seen in Haverhill on Tuesday night. At the time, he was already wanted in connection with a separate drug case. It was during this period that the alleged carjacking attempts began.
After their arrest, Saben and Tirone were both transported to the hospital. Tirone was required to stay overnight and was arraigned on Friday via Zoom while still in her hospital bed. She was ordered to be held without bail.
After being arrested, Saben spent the night in the Essex County House of Correction located in Middleton. He is scheduled to appear in court on November 2 and will also face charges in New Hampshire at some point.
