Concord, NH – Last night, Fugitive of
the Week, Michael P. Mooney was arrested at the Concord Hospital by members
of the Concord Police Department. Michael Mooney, 36, who was last known to live
with his family in Weare, NH, was wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the
Manchester Police Department for first degree assault. On May 8th, Mooney is
alleged to have stabbed another person during an altercation in Manchester.
Shortly after this stabbing, the Manchester Police Department, as a full
time participant with the Marshal’s Fugitive Task force requested that the
task force attempt to locate and arrest Mooney. As part of the U.S.
Marshal’s fugitive investigation, Mooney was aired on just yesterday, as the
'Fugitive of the Week'. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM,
WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily
Democrat and is prominently featured on the internet.
Late last night, the Fugitive Task Force received a call from a tipster that
was 100% positive that they saw this week’s “Fugitive of the Week.” The
tipster stated that the fugitive was currently at the Concord Hospital
seeking treatment for an unknown medical condition. This information was
provided to the Concord Police Department to ensure that this tip was acted
on quickly. Police officers responded to the Concord Hospital and were able
to locate Mooney and arrest him without incident. Mooney was initially
brought to the Concord Police Department, where he was picked up by
Manchester Police Officers. Mooney was brought to the Manchester Police
Department where he was booked on the outstanding arrest warrant for first
degree assault. Mooney is currently being held at the Hillsborough County
Jail pending his initial court appearance sometime today.
