MANCHESTER, NH — A city man wanted by police on other charges was arrested Tuesday after a shoplifting incident at Off Broadway Shoes on March Avenue.

On Nov. 29 police were called by an employee who suspected the man, later identified as Michael Neuberger, 35, of Manchester (no fixed address) appeared to be shoplifting.  Police arrived and confronted Neuberger who was still in the store. According to police Neuberger tried to escape by running down the escalator when he fell and injured himself.

He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Police learned that there were two active Superior Court warrants open for Neuberger originating from Manchester as well: one for unarmed robbery on Nov. 23 when police say he took items from Macy’s; and one alleging he attempted to enter an unspecified building with a crowbar for the intent of burglary on Nov. 10.

Neuberger was scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday in Hillsborough Superior Court-North.

Anyone accused of a crime is innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law.
