A Worcester man was arrested early Wednesday morning after he was caught breaking into the PA Cleaners on Millbrook Street in Worcester. 

Azaraih Ndagigimana, 21, was charged with B&E At Night for a Felony, Larceny from a Building, Possession of Burglarious Instruments, Resisting Arrest, and Vandalism.

The Incident

On Wednesday, October 11 at about 1:15 a.m., Worcester Police were sent to PA Cleaners on Millbrook St for a report of a commercial break in progress. Upon arrival, officers saw that the lower part of the front door was broken, and that there was some blood in the area. Officers saw a man inside the business, and set up a perimeter around it to keep him from escaping. Officers commanded whoever was inside the business to come out with his hands up.

A man, later identified as Ndagigimana, ran out of the business and tried to run past officers. An officer was able to grab him as he attempted to escape, and then Ndagigimana was rapidly moving his body back and forth in an attempt to get away from the officer.

Ndagigimana also kept reaching into his sweatshirt pocket and refused the officer’s commands to show his hands. Eventually, officers were able to take him to the ground and place him under arrest. A search incident to arrest revealed that Ndagigimana had a pair of scissors, a box cutter, a screwdriver, and a backpack full of other items.

Officers were able to view video surveillance, which showed Ndagigimana breaking into the business.
