2 charged with attacking woman with dumbbell


A man and a woman are facing robbery, assault, and other charges after they allegedly attacked a woman with a dumbbell and led police on a high-speed chase. Attorney General Peter Kilmartin announced Wednesday that a grand jury has indicted Nasstassja Hampton, 24, of Warwick and Prince Benjamin, 28, of Biddeford, Maine, in connection with the incident in June. Authorities say they also robbed the woman in her Warwick home. The woman played dead and called police when her attackers left. Hampton and Benjamin are accused of leading officers on a chase on Interstate 95 that ended when they drove off the highway in Richmond. They are being held pending their arraignment Sept. 13.
