BROCKTON, Mass. — Authorities arrested a suspect wanted in connection with an armed home invasion in Brockton on Friday afternoon.

It is unclear if the apartment was occupied at the time.

The suspects then drove off in a grey pickup truck heading north on Belair Street.

A short time later, State Police and Attleboro Police spotted the truck on I-95 South near Route 123 and arrested the driver, according to police.

The suspect’s name is not being released at this time. The second suspect remains at large.
