Man Arrested in Connection With Armed Robbery After 7-Hour Standoff

A man wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Massachusetts has been arrested in Hampton, New Hampshire, following a seven-hour standoff.

Police say 22-year-year-old Michael Ellis, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, faces fugitive from justice and resisting arrest charges. SWAT team members surrounded a house he was in and blocked of the area. They eventually entered the house, finding him hiding.

They said warrants had been issued out of Massachusetts for Ellis on charges of armed robbery and assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Ellis was scheduled to be arraigned Friday. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.
