A Yarmouthport man, wanted for attempted murder and other violent crimes in Falmouth, was taken into custody Monday by members of the Yarmouth Police department’s proactive anti-crime unit.
PAC officers surrounded a home at 174 Setucket Road in Yarmouthport around 1:45 p.m. looking for Michael O’Conner, 34.
In a statement released by the YPD, O’Conner initially attempted to escape by going out a back door, but when he saw a police officer he went back inside.
Following a forced entry into the home, police located O’Conner hiding in the basement.
He was arrested and charged with four felony counts including attempted murder, assault and battery while armed with a dangerous weapon, aggravated A & B, and conspiracy to violate the Massachusetts drug laws.
O’Conner’s charges stem from a stabbing incident in Falmouth in January.
