(NECN) – In Beverly, Mass., police responded to an armed robbery of a home on Pleasant Street around 2:30 p.m.

They were told to look for a suspect described as wearing baggy jeans and a Red Sox cap.

A police officer nearby at Edwards and Fayette Street saw a man fitting the description but the only difference was he was wearing a Yankees cap.

The officer approached the man but the man fled.

The police believed he was the suspect so they went looking for him.

They caught him. Witnesses said he wasn’t the suspect, and the man in the Yankees cap said he ran because he had an outstanding warrant.

The home invasion suspect or suspects are still on the run.
