GROTON, Conn. (AP) - Police say a man wanted in connection with home invasions in North Carolina fled from police and U.S. marshals when they tried to serve a warrant at an address in Connecticut before he was taken into custody.
Twenty-five-year-old Bacardi Robinson faces charges including being a fugitive from justice, robbery and assault on police. The Associated Press could not immediately determine whether he has an attorney.
Groton Police Lt. John Varone said officers attempted to serve a warrant on the convicted felon in Navy housing but he jumped out of a second-story window and fled.
Authorities in Connecticut said Robinson was wanted in connection with three violent home invasions in the area of Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Several roads that were closed in Groton during the search have since been reopened.
