Police: NH parolee attempts to flee officers after being seen in stolen car
MANCHESTER — A man who was out on parole has been arrested following an attempt to run from officers, police said.
An officer was patrolling the area of Auburn and Union streets at 3:40 a.m. Thursday when he saw a man get into a parked Buick.
The officer went to investigate due to a recent spike in car break-ins in that area.
As he approached the car, the man, later identified as Paul Fascona, 48, of Manchester, attempted to run from the officer, police said.
The officer grabbed Frascona as he tried to run and a short struggle ensued before the officer was able to get Frascona on the ground and under control while an additional officer arrived, police said.
Police learned the Buick was reported stolen out of Manchester on July 10 and was involved in a chase with Hooksett Police on July 11.
Frascona, who is out on parole, was charged with resisting arrest, receiving stolen property and violations of bail.
He is scheduled to appear in Manchester district court on Thursday.
