CORNISH — A man that police described as having violent tendencies and was wanted in New Hampshire for violating his parole was apprehended in Cornish Saturday afternoon.

Chief Deputy William L. King Jr. said deputies from the York County Sheriff’s Office responded around 4:45 p.m. to the report of a man and woman engaged in a heated argument near 133 Cumberland St. in Cornish. The witness who notified police said the argument was beginning to escalate.

When the deputies arrived, they encountered a man who initially provided a false name and allegedly said “See you later” before fleeing on foot in the direction of the Saco River.

Nicholas Davis, 34, no fixed address, ran about 50 yards before the deputies were able to subdue him. He was arrested on a parole violation for receiving stolen property from New Hampshire and for refusal to submit to arrest.

He is being held at the York County Jail without bail pending his extradition to New Hampshire. King said Davis has violent tendencies and a history of resisting arrest.
