5:00 pm
does cool down a little bit. josh: police on the scene of a crash that shut down several streets. reporter: we can give you a live look at the accident scene right now, which is scaled back in activity within the last 10 to 15 minutes. you can see a black s.u.v. there that took most of the damage and then a gray hyundai disannex to it. we don't have any information other than that the driver of the sedan is okay and the driver of the s.u.v. had to be extricated from the vehicle with the jaws of life by the manchester fire department. that person was conscious and alert. the fire department telling us that he suffered a severe lower leg injury, possibly a broken femur, but that those injuries are not life threatening. however it was pretty touch and go when they had to get him out
5:01 pm
broken femur is potentially life threatening. so they had to cut the other side of that s.u.v. off to get that patient out. as far as who is at fault and what exactly unfolded in this accident, that's something we're still trying to figure out and get information from police, but hopefully we'll have an updaughter later the this news -- an update later in the newscast. jean: tonight a man faces sexual assault charges after an investigation that triggered heightened security it a panthers school. three female high school students told police that the 19-year-old assaulted them near beach and hanover streets near central high school. wmur's heather hamel is live there tonight. reporter: it was a frightening spears for these three girls. they told school administrators that the man had groped them and tried to lure them back to his house. that was around 8:00 this morning and the superintendent says they immediately took action. the school was secured, e-mails
5:02 pm
effort out there. was a beefed up police presence around the school, and in about an hour they did find a man that met the girls' description. 19-year-old ahmed abukar of manchester was arrested, originally on a drug charge and then more. >> i think every incident can be a teaching moment for all involved and it's important to note that these girls reported this. but even more important is anyone that's walking in around school, work, you should always be aware of your surroundings, which these girls were. reporter: alonger with the three sexual assault charges, he also faces criminal threatening charges as well as criminal trespass. heather hamel, wmur news 9. josh: staggering numbers revealing tonight in a dcyf report obtained by news 9, it paint a picture of what staffing at the department looks like when it comes to protecting new hampshire children from abuse and neglect.
5:03 pm
reporter: the report says that dcyf has 176 child protection service workers. the turnover rate over the past two years, over 50%. the report states staffing is inadequate and burnout is at an all-time high. dcyf director bartlett authored the report, last year she gave news 9 unprecedented access to the intake center in concord where the phones never stop ringing. between october 1, 2014 and september 30, 2015 a typical caseworker was assigned 125 to 186 new investigations. some supervisors were managing 60 to 70 cases. burnout is cited as the common reason for the high turnover rate. child abuse reports have risen 15% over the past four years, but staffing is kripped by that high turnover. it takes about three months to fill a vacancy and 12 weeks to train a new hire.
5:04 pm
implement a 24-7 system would take 41 new caseworkers and $4 million. the governor's office released a statement this afternoon saying the governor support providing 24-7 response to dcyf to reports of abuse and neglect. but acting commissioner meyers believes the plan needs more work and has been working to improve that plan. jean: the man wanted in a pair of robberies is now under arrest after police say a wmur viewer recognized the suspect. right now krofer aldrich is in the hospital under the guard of u.s. marshals. police say he robbed the concord mart over the weekend. the clerk was stabbed when he tried to fight off a robber with a stick. aldrich is also accused of robbing a bank in goffstown yesterday. josh: commitment 2016 now, and campaign trail traffic is flowing into iowa, with less
5:05 pm

5:06 pm
with this message, and if i get snuffed out in new hampshire, ball game over. reporter: while other candidates make a final push in iowa, kasich fielded questions in new boston on everything from race relations to guantanamo bay. he is feeling the heat, figuratively and literally. >> okay, this is such a nice group this morning, and i'm burning up. before it's over i'm going to go without any shirt on. >> he was one of my top pick from the very, very beginning, and i think he's a very sensible, humanized individual. >> i liked him back when he balanced the federal budget. i'd like to see him do it again. reporter: despite a pressing schedule, he lingered to snap photos and enjoy the moment. on board the bus, which is covering a lot ground in new hampshire, kasich says he feels something special might be brewing in his campaign. >> i've seen so many good things happen in my lifetime. i know people come together,
5:07 pm
really want to do at the end, lift everybody up. we can do it again. josh: with the addition of "the boston globe" and concord monitor, kasich has a total of seven newspaper endorsements this month. on the democratic side, both papers have endorsed hillary clinton. and republican george pataki endorsed marco rubio today. the former governor dropped his own bid for the white house, he says now that rubio is the best candidate from either party. jean: a police chief already indicted in a sexual assault investigation has now stepped down from the job. canterbury jeef john laroche is accused of assaulting a girl 16 years ago when he was a police officer. as wmur's ray brewer reports, the case had some people wanting to eliminate the department altogether. reporter: back in december, some residents were calling for the police department to be shut down, saying they could no longer trust police. but selectmen rejected that
5:08 pm
police department and they're working to address residents' concerns. news that of the police chief's resignation came in a brief statement from the board of of selectmen saying only that john laroche has tendered his resignation and selectmen voted unanimously to accept it effective immediately. laroche is charged with several felonies including aggravated felonious sexual assault. he allegedly assaultedded a teen at the boscawen police department and a cruiser and at the boscawen boat ramp. the chief has been on unpaid administrative leave, the police department being run a a sergeant. the selectmen are also working with the sheriff's department to conduct a formal review of the department. ray brewer, wmur news 9. jean: it's time to see how traffic is moving out there, 293 in manchester near exit 5.

5:15 pm
that we turned things around. last year we had had the thanksgiving storm, but after that had been relatively quiet. so far in year, total snow for the entire season is 12.4 inches. this is for concord. and you break that down, there was none in november. 4.4 in december, and eight inches in january so far. of course we've got a little bit of january left, but we're toward the end. so where do we stand in history on this? we're taking a look right here, and we are currently tied for fifth place. it's hard to believe but there were several years that up until this point of january and through the end of january there were less snow than what we've seen this year. so far, 12.4 inches, but we're just barely above 1954 and '55. take a look at this, this is how much snow we ended up with all those years after the really
5:16 pm
the average snowfall is 64.5 inches for the entire season, and all of these years ended up with less. could there be any snow in the offing for this week to change that? mike haddad has details on that. mike: yes, josh, it's been a struggle to get the snow. and of course today with the reading up to 50 degrees no chance at all. but the pattern is beginning to cool down a little. notice the time lapse out at the coast, in portsmouth we did have some breaks of sunshine at times. but quite a few clouds, and despite the cloud cover, how about the temperatures, again making a run well above the average, and looking ahead, yes, we do cool down a little bit but still remain above the norm all week long. good chance of some snow showers later on tonight and into tomorrow, mainly in the north country. otherwise mainly dry into thursday, and then there is a chance of a few snow showers or flurries later thursday night into friday, and then again later on saturday. as the pattern is somewhat active.
5:17 pm
compared to a big storm threat across the northeast. you'll notice on doppler radar right now, not too much happening, a few sprinkles darting through. a few more upstream will accompany slightly cooler air later tonight. more snow showers back to the west. best threat of those tonight and tomorrow will be northern and western new hampshire. there could even be a light accumulation. the highs today, again making a run, keep in mind the average is 31 degrees. 15 above that in the state capital. 50 in nashua, close to that in manchester and even near the coast, topped off in the upper 40s of even up north in the 40s as well. and even atop mount washington, not all that bad for over 6,000 feet up. here and now, 30's and 40's across the board, well above the norm. so we're jumping a head on the calendar. overnight tonight not that chilly. the low, 31.
5:18 pm
for a daytime high this time of year. so again a mild start for the day tomorrow. even though it will be mild early tomorrow morning, relatively speaking, there's some cooler air that begins to build on in. so not a big temperature jump during the day tomorrow. we should top off on average mid 30's north, lower 40's south before we cool a little bit later in the day. no big storms, a couple of snow showers chances, first one will move in late tonight and especially tomorrow in northern and parts of western new hampshire. there was a slight chance of a sprinkle or flurry that may survive the trip into parts of southern new hampshire during the afternoon. fair amount of sun for thursday morning. then jumping a head to the afternoon, a few clouds will build in later in the day into friday. a couple of snow showers with an upper level system as a big storm scoots well off shore of new england. no chance of that getting in here, but could be a light accumulation, especially in northern parts of the state. mostly cloudy, mixed shower up north changing over to snow showers later on tonight. tomorrow clouds and sunshine,
5:19 pm
showers in the mountains. there could be a sprinkle or flurry elsewhere. showers friday. a little bit of light snow or flurries later saturday, as another warm front moves in. so sunday and monday we're right back to 40 plus. jean: an amazing run here, thanks, mike. josh: up next, republican candidates for president weigh violence. jean: then at 5:30 we're hearing from the firefighter who lives in the historic home destroyed by flames this week what he did
5:20 pm
is if you work hard, and you do your part, you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead. but so many families don't feel like their hard work pays off. that's not the way america is supposed to operate. i want to go to bat for them every single day. get incomes rising... get equal pay for women... cut the cost of health caret and child care so people canr actually get ahead. hillary clinton, she has what it takes to get things done. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message.

5:21 pm
candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong. (elephant noise)
5:22 pm
josh: continuing our commitment 2016 coverage, we asked the presidential candidates what they would do to reduce gun violence in our country. here's the first round of answers. >> that's hard, because i think you're talking now about the character of men, and women. but violence is something that seems to have gotten worse in the last several decades. some say let's just ban guns. i'm not for that. you would have to change the constitution in order to ban guns. and i think ends are also used in good ways by good people and bad ways by bad people. if you take guns away from the good people then only the bad people will have them and criminals don't care about laws. if you're a suicide terrorist, more gun control laws aren't
5:23 pm
plan on dieing when you finish. so i think ultimately we do need more self defense and i think we should announce basically to people who are wanting to perpetrate these horrific murders, we should announce to them that there are not going to be place where is they can go that are called gun-free zones. i think we should allow people to have self defense mostly as a deterrent. >> gun violence in our country is a societal issue. part of it is due to mental illness, unfortunately and part of is is due to societal breakdown. we need a president that understand that the most important institution in society is the family. that without family we can't instill the values of respect for life, are of hard work, discipline and self control. so we've got to strengthen family life in america. that's not the job of government. but government shouldn't be doing anything that undermines the family. that's why i support the institutions in our society that strengthen the family. i support religious liberty. and i support a pro family tax code that allows working families to keep more of their
5:24 pm
>> i go back to the family, i go back to where the object isn't the problem. there's a higher ownership of guns in this country today, but there's a lot more gun violence. so it's not the inan mat job stheak causes the problem. we have a breakdown of the family that's leading to a country that is, well, less responsible and less concerned about the dignity of all human life. and more concerned about themselves and getting what they want. family is a big part of that. families, communities, churches. so it's the ability to build a healthier society is the easier answer. it's a harder answerer, and the easy answer is let's take people's guns, that's the wrong answer because it's not going to solve the problem.
5:25 pm
washington where guns are banned and the violence is the worst. so let's focus on what causes the problem as opposed to blaming something that had had nothing to do other than just being there. jean: also ahead, new hampshire lawmakers are working to close a loophole when it comes to so-called revenge porn. josh: and a strange health warning for women in response to a dangerous virus. jean: now to our u local hot shot, this is 18-month-old lindsey, already snow boarding pro. she hits the slopes with mom at her side, and a camera of

5:38 pm
josh: commitment 016, we continue with the presidential candidates' take on a controversial topic, asking what they would do to reduce gun violence in our country. >> well, i'm a big second amendment person. i believe that we have a huge mental health problem in this country, and that's the problem we have to solve. we already have too many rules and regulations on guns, and frankly if some of these gun-free zones had guns in the hand of the people that were being killed you wouldn't have had the problem. so i'm a very big second amendment person. and everybody knows it. in fact, i have a license to carry in new york, which is almost impossible to get, and i
5:39 pm
so we have to preserve and protect our second amendment very strong, very powerful. >> what we shouldn't do, particularly at the washington level, is to impose restrictions on law abiding gun owners. that doesn't deal with gun violence. that restricts people's freedom. and inevitably washington has this impulse to try to solve a problem by inflicting challenges or burdens on people that haven't had anything to do with the violence or the problem that existed. so the second amendment is an important as any of the 10 in our bill of rights and i think it should be protected. gun violence can be solved by dealing with habitual offenders and it can be solved by giving people hope that their future can be better, which means a world class education, more career orientation so that people can access jobs. stronger families, a focus on the fact that we have these
5:40 pm
mental illness and maybe we ought to have a better safety net for people that are spiraling out of control, and identify them before they commit these atrocious public violent acts. >> i am not one of those people who says we can reduce the violence by grabbing guns. because when we look at the mass murders that have occurred recently they tend to occur in gun-free zones. that's because the good people listen to the rules, but the bad people don't. so i do believe we should learn from every single incident of mass murder. so we can try to develop a profile of what kind of people are likely to do this. and we need to be able to pull the trigger, no pun intended. it was several of the people who have done these things have been in psychiatric consultation. but nothing was done. and in some cases it was even
5:41 pm
potentially be dangerous. we have got to find a way to be able to activate mechanisms to intervene before the tragedy occurs. >> well, i would make sure that gun violence is reduced in this country by empowering police officers to put criminals in jail. socio-paths who are using firearms to commit crimes need to go to jail. and the christie administration there will always be a jail cell for the socio-path who used guns to commit violent acts. but we do not need to pass new gun lawls that place further restrictions on law abiding citizens, folks who are doing this for self protection or collecting guns for their own sport or for hunting. those people do not new gun laws on them, they're not the ones creating violent acts in the streets. the ones creating violent acts are the criminals, as i former prosecutor i know how to bring those cases. we'll set that policy in a christie administration and we'll reduce gun violence in

5:43 pm
quiet day, again temperatures running nowhere close to the average, starting off on the relatively mild side. although it was cool and bouncing up quickly into the 40's a good part of the late morning and afternoon. the almanac data for concord today, topping off at 46. the average 31. even though we did top off above the average, nowhere close to the record of 63 set back in 19506789 there's a look at your sunset time, getting closer and closer to 5:00. right now on the dry side, there are some clouds continuing to build on in with the weak system approaching from the west. couple of sprinkles of rain and snow in central new york. a lot of that will dry up in time. these snow showers will tend to dry up as well as they approach later on tonight. but as soon as the wind go more to the west northwest that will start to ring out some snow showers in parts of the great north woods and white mountains, again beginning very late tonight. as for the here and now, still on the mild side, lower merrimack valley to the coast,
5:44 pm
