HOLYOKE (WGGB) — Holyoke Police arrested an armed man who they say led them on a chase Thursday night.

Officers responded to the area of 470 Maple Street around 9:30 p.m., because of reports that there was a man with a handgun.

As police entered the building and went up the front stairs, several suspects ran out the back staircase.

Other officers on the stairs to the rear porches saw the suspects, one of whom ran away. Officers chased him for several blocks before catching him and placing him under arrest.

He had a .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun loaded with 9 rounds of ammunition.

The suspect was identified as Angel Hernandez-Carino, 19, of Springfield. He is being charged with breaching the building while armed, carrying a firearm without a license to carry, possession of ammunition without an FID card, and resisting arrest.

He will be arraigned in Holyoke District Court on Friday.

    Look at this guys pic, then the one with the “Five arrested in Holyoke” story pic, and you can swear that they are father and son, or brothers. Only the hair changes.

    Everytime I see these news stories from Holyoke or Springfield I cringe. I’m Puerto Rican, and very proud to be so. I work full time, and am a full time college student on the Dean’s list. It’s people like this loser that give our people a bad name. There are so many of us who are good, hard working people who are trying to do something positive with our lives, but instead all the community sees are stories like this. It’s a shame. C’mon people, get up, go to school, go to work, and do something with your life! Don’t live up to the stereotypes!

    Hopefully, you have a better hair stylist. This guy’s should be criminally indicted for Disturbing the Peace !

    Hey J.C., news flash….your an American and many of us work full time if we can, and some of us go to school to better our lives. Identify as an American like the Irish, French Italians and Polish people did when they came to be part of this great country. It is not you people, nor our people, it is we Americans.
