Naked man breaks into family’s home, strangles golden retriever, just two days after assault on detective: Cops

Authorities in New Hampshire say a man facing charges for assault on a police officer was out on bail just two days after his initial arrest when he was involved in a bizarre home invasion.

According to WHDH,, 28-year-old Irakozie Ildephones is accused of breaking into an apartment on Cherry Street in Concord on Wednesday.

He was allegedly naked when he climbed a wall into the apartment complex and forced his way into a second-story home by crashing through a glass door.

Once inside, police say he strangled a pet golden retriever and forced the family inside to leave and seek shelter in a locked vehicle outside.

The animal is expected to survive its injuries but was found with serious injuries and rushed to an emergency veterinary clinic for treatment.

He then allegedly began throwing items from the apartment outside, stomping on glass and otherwise damaging the residents’ property.

Local police officers responded to the scene at around 3 p.m. in response to complaints of a man wearing only a bathrobe and banging on doors in the community.

Despite law enforcement efforts to calm the suspect, reports indicate officers were forced to use a stun gun to subdue and arrest Ildephones.

After he was in police custody, he was transported to an area hospital for unspecified medical treatment and later released. From there, he was booked into jail with bail set at $15,000.

Ildephones was expected to appear in Merrimack County Superior Court on Thursday to be arraigned on multiple new charges including bail violation, simple assault cruelty to an animal, indecent exposure, and reckless conduct.

His prior charges stemmed from an arrest on Monday for assault on a detective during an investigation into a reported stabbing.
