    U.S. Marshals arrested a man Thursday who was wanted for attempted murder for allegedly stabbing another man multiple times at a club in Manchester, New Hampshire.

    Davelle Broadus, 29, was arrested on Thursday night in Methuen, Massachusetts. He is charged with attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon.

    Broadus was allegedly involved in a fight around 1 a.m. on Wednesday at the Pericles Club at 127 Spruce St. in Manchester. During the altercation, a 30-year-old man was stabbed multiple times, resulting in serious injuries, including paralysis.

    Broadus fled the scene on foot but was apprehended following a brief chase and charged with a misdemeanor offense of resisting arrest. He was to be detained on a 72-hour probation hold at the Hillsborough County Jail while the investigation continued, but was given bail on the resisting arrest charge.

    On Thursday, Manchester Police concluded their investigation into the stabbing and prepared an arrest warrant charging Broadus with the two more serious counts. When Manchester Police learned that Broadus was no longer in custody, they asked the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force to assist in his arrest.

    The task force determined that Broadus was likely living in Methuen with a girlfriend.

    On Thursday night, U.S. Marshals and Methuen Police went to an apartment in the 70 block of Mystic Street and forced the door open after several attempts to get Broadus to come to the door failed. He was located inside and arrested without further incident.

    Broadus was turned over to the Methuen Police Department, where he was charged with an outstanding Massachusetts warrant for assault and battery with a deadly weapon, as well as being a fugitive from justic on the outstanding New Hampshire warrant.

    He will be held at Essex County Jail pending his initial court appearance on the Massachusetts charge and his eventual return to New Hampshire.
