Judge Revokes Bail of Armed Robbery Suspect

Haverhill District Court

A third suspect, arrested Sunday on an armed robbery charge after what Haverhill police called “a drug deal gone bad” last month, remains held after bail stemming from an open assault case was revoked.

Bail was set at $10,000 for Dalvin F. Andino, 19, of Haverhill, during his arraignment Tuesday in Haverhill District Court on one count of armed robbery in connection with a Jan. 26 incident at Forest Acres Drive, according to Carrie Kimball-Monahan, spokesperson for Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett. However, bail was revoked in an open case from last September.

“He is held without bail on that case—an assault and battery from September,” Kimball-Monahan told WHAV Wednesday. “He is due back in court on March 7 for both cases.”

Andino was arrested by Haverhill police on a warrant Sunday as a result of an investigation following the arrests of two other suspects, Ian Kessel, 19, of Haverhill and an unidentified 17-year-old juvenile. However, according to a Haverhilll police arrest log, Kessel was taken into police custody at 11:36 a.m., Tuesday. He had reportedly violated bail conditions. Kimball-Monahan referred WHAV’s inquiries to the Probation department.

“We did not have him back in court yesterday,” Kimball-Monahan said.

Last April, WHAV reported, Andino, and Gilbert Vasquez, then 18, of Haverhill, were arrested at 4 Temple St. Each was charged with two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. In September, they pair were each arrested on warrants, charging them with assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and common law affray.

Kessel, a former running back for the Hillies and an All-MVC performer in 2014, and the juvenile were each arraigned on an armed robbery charge last month in Haverhill District Court.
