Nashua police arrested 23-year-old Thomas Newcomb on July 26 in connection with a June 16 armed robbery in which a man was robbed at knifepoint.

Newcomb, with a last known address of 92 Kinsley St., was arrested on a warrant for armed robbery, a class A felony, and resisting arrest, a class A misdemeanor, police said.

On June 16, Nashua police officers apprehended Michael Briand, 22, of 67 Kinsley St., Nashua, and Jared Poliquin, 19, of the same address, and charged them with criminal liability for the conduct of another to robbery, police said.

Officers responded to a West Hollis Street address for the report of an armed robbery on June 16. Police said the victim reported Briand and two other men robbed him at knifepoint while in a vehicle on Lund Road. Briand and Poliquin were soon arrested for their alleged role in the robbery and a warrant for Newcomb's arrest was then issued.
