January 2, 2019

FITCHBURG -- A 22-year-old Fitchburg man wanted by police following a violent domestic incident on Summit Street on Monday has turned himself in, authorities say.

Sanderson Cuevas walked in to the Leominster Police Department on Tuesday morning and gave himself up without incident, according to Fitchburg police Lt. Christopher Garcia.

Cuevas was wanted for assault with a dangerous weapon and use of a firearm in a felony, according to a Fitchburg Police Department press release. The 22-year-old was also wanted for allegedly possessing ammunition without a Firearms Identification Card.

The incident unfolded at around 1 p.m. Monday when police responded to an address on Summit Street, the release states.

“Upon arrival it was learned that a firearm had been involved and that an armed and possibly dangerous suspect was unaccounted for,” the release continues.

A police search ensued, including of an address in Fitchburg and another in Lunenburg.

Garcia revealed Cuevas ended up turning himself in to Leominster police before being transferred to the Fitchburg Police Department.

The 22-year-old is slated to be arraigned in court this morning.
