    Man Wanted 20 Years in Conn. Arrested in Mass.

    A Massachusetts man wanted for a home invasion committed in Connecticut nearly 20 years ago was taken into custody today.

    Jose Manuel Blanco-Dominguez, 57 of Lawrence, Massachusetts, is being held as a fugitive of justice.

    On Saturday, May 14, Boxborough police pulled Blanco-Dominguez over after a check of his registration alerted police he had an active warrant against him.

    Blanco-Dominguez attempted to provide police with many aliases, but was placed under arrest.

    Blanco-Dominguez is wanted from an incident that occurred on June 25, 1997 in which two men, two women and two children were held at knife-point at a Windham, Connecticut, home.

    After a 30 minute standoff with police, three of the masked men were captured. Blanco-Dominguez eluded police by jumping out of a window and running into the nearby woods.

    Blanco-Dominguez is being held without bail pending his arraignment for extradiction back to Connecticut.
