A man wanted by New Britain police on attempted murder and other charges in connection with a violent hammer attack on three people December 29th  on Columbus Boulevard is now in custody in Canada.  The three attack victims are recovering.

New Britain police say 41-year-old Randy Breton entered the country illegally, and was picked up in Montreal over the weekend. He’s due to go before a judge Tuesday.

Captain James Wardwell says Breton has no known ties to Canada.  He faces attempted murder and other charges.
