Police Seeking Man Wanted for North Adams Assault

Editor's note: According to North Adams Police, Joshua Allen was not arrested by New York State Police on Monday. This information was given erroneously because of a "communication error." There is still a warrant out for Allen's arrest.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —  A man wanted in connection with a machete attack in North Adams has been apprehended by New York State Police.

North Adams Police reported shortly after 4 p.m. Monday that Joshua Allen, 27, had been taken into custody after a nearly three-day search.

A warrant for Joshua Allen, 27, was issued Saturday after Allen allegedly attacked his domestic partner in the early morning hours at their Montana Street residence and fled. He was believed to be driving a gray or silver 2002 Toyota Celica with no license plates to New York State, where he reportedly had connections.

A police alert cautioned people not to approach Allen if sighted but to immediately contact police.

Allen is described as white, standing 6-feet and weighing approximately 200 pounds. Anyone with information on Allen's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the North Adams Police Department at 413-664-4944 (press option 1).

He is expected to be arraigned on charges of assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (a knife), strangulation, malicious destruction of property and cruelty to animals.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Police, which described the victim as a commuter student, contacted city police after learning of the off-campus incident.

The incident is under investigation by the North Adams Police Department and Berkshire County district attorney's office.
