A man who walked away from a halfway house on Lowell Street two weeks ago was picked up by Manchester police and now faces a new felony charge.

Michael Matteuzzi, 32, of Weare, was arrested by Manchester Police Officer Eric Joyal, who stopped a vehicle in the area of 7-Eleven at the intersection of Beech and Valley streets just after midnight. Matteuzzi was a passenger in the vehicle. He was charged with escape, a felony charge.

Matteuzzi was convicted for being a habitual offender and was serving a sentence of 1-3 years. He was on work release and residing at Calumet House transitional living when he failed to return by the required check-in time.

The Calumet House has a capacity of up to 69 inmates who are there on work or educational release within about six months of scheduled parole.
