MANCHESTER, NH — A man wanted on warrants out of Manchester and Haverhill, Mass., was arrested after a confrontation with police at Pulaski Park led to a foot pursuit.

Anthony Alvarez, 21, no fixed address, was arrested at 2:40 p.m. on Nov. 28 after running from several officers, who had established he was a wanted man.

The incident began when Officer Anna Martin addressed several people  inside Pulaski Park, after receiving complaints for disorderly behavior.

Among those she spoke with was Alvarez. Alvarez provided a false name and stated he did not have identification on him. However, Officer Adam Beland arrived on scene and recognized Alvarez from previous interactions. Officer Beland confirmed a Manchester Police arrest warrant, so he approached Alvarez to place him into custody. Instead, Alvarez fled on foot and attempted to evade capture.

Alvarez was caught behind 592 Pine St. a short time later by Officer Jamie Branch. Alvarez was arrested on the warrant (criminal trespass and resisting arrest stemming from a November 22 incident at Manchester Housing Authority) and picked up several new charges. He was charged on Monday with resisting arrest/detention, fugitive from justice and violation probation/parole.

Records indicated he was also wanted out of Haverhill, Mass., on multiple charges including robbery and burglary. He was scheduled to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on November 29, 2016.
