Pittsfield Man Accused of Attack On Woman
Nicholas McNeil was held after pleading not guilty at his arraignment Monday on charges connected to the alleged assault on Dec. 10 and a series of break-ins police say he is responsible for.
Police describe the alleged attack on the woman “violent” and left her with a sore elbow and leg.
The 34-year-old McNeil told police that he is a crack addict.
His attorney asked that he be released on no bail given that he is a father of two and no flight risk. The defense attorney also questioned whether his client was read his Miranda rights.
