Authorities have located a man who may be connected to an assault after crews searched a wooded area near Route 495 in Boxborough on Tuesday, state police said.
The man was taken into custody at 5:11 p.m. in the area of Hillcrest Drive and Stow Road in Harvard, a state police spokesman said. The man was turned over to Boxborough Police.
A perimeter was established around the area, which is roughly bordered by Eldridge and Harvard roads, according to state police.
The search involved troopers from the State Police-Concord Barracks, local officers from the Boxborough Police Department and surrounding towns, State Police and local police K9 teams, and the State Police Air Wing.
Local residents who “see a suspicious person or someone who seems out-of-place for his surroundings” were asked not to approach him, and call 911, state police said in a statement.
