An "armed and dangerous" manhunt suspect wanted in connection with an assault early Monday morning has turned himself in to police in Waltham, Massachusetts.
Twenty-nine-year-old Darren Dyette faces numerous charges, including two counts of witness intimidation, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and strangulation or suffocation.
The search for Dyette started when officers were called to the Extended Stay America hotel on Fourth Avenue around 5 a.m. Monday. The manhunt, which involved several law enforcement agencies, extended to the surrounding areas after Dyette ran away from officers near Main Street and Bear Hill Road.

Aerial footage from NBC10 Boston's Sky Ranger helicopter showed police searching the Avalon apartment complex in Waltham. Officers could be seen with guns drawn, apparently looking for the suspect. A Massachusetts State Police helicopter was also spotted flying overhead.
Waltham officers rushed back to the apartment complex Monday afternoon after getting a call about the suspect, perhaps in one of the buildings. Some people in the complex weren’t even aware of what happened, despite reverse 911 call from police.
There was a mention of a firearm at the scene of the assault, police said. They said he has a lengthy criminal history.
It's unclear when Dyette will appear in court or if he has an attorney.
