MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - A 20-year-old man is facing a criminal charge after police say a brawl near a YMCA in Manchester, New Hampshire, prompted a foot chase that ended in an arrest.

Officers responding to a report of a fight in the area of Mechanic Street and Hampshire Lane learned eight people, including a knife-wielding man, had just been involved in an altercation, according to the Manchester Police Department.

One of the individuals Madey Khamis, of Manchester, emerged from an alley near the YMCA, made eye contact with an officer, and allegedly took off running.
