MERRIMACK – Police arrested a Manchester man Sunday and accused him of breaking into a house and threatening a man inside with a pipe wrench.

Police were called to a home on Front Street shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday when a resident said a man had entered his house, but he lost track of the intruder, police said.

Officers found Matthew Wamsley, 23 of 304 Manchester St., Manchester, behind a shed in the yard. After a short investigation, police determined Wamsley had entered the home, picked up a pipe wrench and threatened the man who was in a locked bedroom, police said.

Police charged Wamsley with burglary and criminal threatening, as well as on an outstanding warrant issued by the Peterborough district court. Wamsley was held on $5,000 cash bail and ordered to be arraigned at Merrimack district court on Tuesday, police said.
