Pembroke man indicted, accused of rape in Hooksett

A Pembroke man has been indicted on charges he assaulted and raped a woman in Hooksett.

Robert Luicha, 49, is accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting the 47-year-old woman during an incident Jan. 6. He is also accused of false imprisonment and simple assault.

At the time, both were living in the house, according to an affidavit filed by the Hooksett police, though Luicha’s address on the indictments is listed as 235 Dearborn Road in Pembroke.

After playing cards in the kitchen, Luicha tried to untie the woman’s bathrobe, and pulled down her pajamas and underwear before forcibly performing oral sex on her, according to the affidavit.

He then pulled her into the living room, where he allegedly assaulted her on the couch before pushing her down the hall into a bedroom. In the bedroom, the woman tried to get into the attached bathroom and close the door, but Luicha allegedly blocked the door and pulled her out of the bathroom. He threw her toward the bed, but she fell against an oak table, causing severe bruising, according to the file. Luicha then allegedly raped the woman vaginally and anally in the bedroom.

He moved out of the house the next day, and on Jan. 12 she reported the incident to the Hooksett police.

Luicha is next due in Merrimack County Superior Court on April 17.

Women in abusive realtionships often take a long time to report anything, if in fact they report the abuse at all. It is a cycle of dependence, with the abuser breaking them down so much, they have no confidence to do what is best for them. Instead an abusive relationship is one that they accept.

The incident happened on Jan. 6, and she reported it on Jan. 12th?
