Haverhill Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a man accused of taking part in an attempted break-in at a gas station in Ward Hill last weekend.
A police spokesperson said one man was caught and arrested after an alert passerby called police when he heard a banging noise coming from the back of the Mobil Mart on South Main St. Police officers responded and found two men were attempting to smash through the wall of the business.
Police said officers gave chase and captured one suspect. The other managed to get away when a passing train came between police and the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call Haverhill Police.
