CHESTERFIELD, N.H. >> A Chesterfield man suspected of robbing a Dunkin Donuts in Brattleboro in May is wanted in connection with the stabbing of a man on Herrick Drive Wednesday morning.

Not only is Peter Giandalone, 22, suspected of robbing the Dunkin Donuts, he was also arrested in mid-May and cited with passing forged $100 bills at three different locations in Cheshire County. Now the Chesterfield Police Department has issued a be-on-the-lookout alert for Giandalone. Police believe he might be driving a Subaru Impreza hatchback, with New Hampshire plate number 3241274.

Chesterfield Police Chief Duane M. Chickering told the Keene Sentinel that the N.H. Attorney General's Office is investigating, but he couldn't comment further on the incident.

"At this point, we do have a stabbing, and we're looking for information pertaining to that," he told the Sentinel.

According to the Sentinel, Giandalone was arraigned in Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene on May 16 on the three felony forgery charges for passing fake bills. His bail was initially set at $10,000, but was then lowered for him to be released on personal recognizance.
