NORTH HAVEN — Police responded to the Home Depot in North Haven on calls of a robbery in progress on Sunday afternoon.

The suspects ran away from the business before police arrived at the scene.
The suspect who waved the knife, Noel Santiago, was arrested a few hundred yards away. It was said that he also fought with police officers.
Santiago, 54, is facing various charges including robbery in the first degree and interfering with officers. He is scheduled to be in court July 8.
