NORTH HAVERHILL —– A 20-year-old Claremont man has pleaded not guilty to charges he sexually assaulted three girls, at least one of whom was under 13 years old.

Tori Bonner was ordered released on a $10,000 unsecured appearance bond following his arraignment in Grafton Superior Court earlier this week, according to Grafton County Attorney Marcie Hornick. As part of his release, he was ordered to have no contact with four unnamed people and to abide by an 8 p.m. curfew.

Bonner is facing charges of aggravated felonious sexual assault and two counts of felonious sexual assault for allegedly assaulting the three girls who were all under 15, according to a news release from the Lebanon Police Department.

Lebanon police began investigating the case in July after receiving reports that the girls had been assaulted in the spring and summer, police wrote. During the investigation they found more assaults had happened in Canaan and Enfield, according to the release.

Lebanon Police Chief Richard Mello said Bonner was not related to the victims, nor did he meet them through school or camp. He said Bonner did talk to at least one victim via a social media account, but declined to elaborate.

A police affidavit with details about the charges was sealed.

Mello said Bonner had befriended the girls and gained their trust.

A Facebook account appearing to belong to Bonner says he was a student at Mascoma High School in 2016 and was a Canaan resident.

A dispositional hearing is scheduled for Bonner in February, Hornick said.
