Second man is charged in Milford burglary

MILFORD – The former Hudson man arrested late last week by Hudson police after a foot chase in the southern part of town has now been charged in connection with previous burglaries in both Hudson and Milford, officials said.

John Barbuti, 30, a former resident of 18B Quail Run Drive, who has recently been living in Florida, is scheduled to be arraigned today in Milford District Court on a charge of burglary, which officials said stems from an August burglary at the Bonsai II restaurant on Nashua Street in Milford.

Meanwhile, Hudson police, after arresting Barbuti late Thursday morning for allegedly fleeing from officers, also charged him with burglary, accusing him of taking part in a July burglary near his former Quail Run Drive residence.

Barbuti was arraigned Friday in a Nashua court on that charge, police said.

As for the August burglary in Milford, police said Saturday that they arrested a second suspect on Sept. 28, identifying him as Shivam Yadav, 25, last known address of 105 Walnut St.,


He was arraigned on Sept. 29 in Milford district court. The status of his case wasn’t immediately known.

Thursday’s arrest of Barbuti, according to Hudson police, followed a roughly quarter-mile foot pursuit through woods between Quail Run Drive and St. Anthony Way.

Police said officers responded to the area after learning that a wanted subject, later identified as Barbuti, had been spotted in the neighborhood.

Officer Rob McNally recognized Barbuti, police said, but as he went to speak with him, Barbuti allegedly ran into nearby woods.

McNally was able to overtake, and arrest, Barbuti, and charged him with one count of resisting arrest. He was booked at police headquarters, and was later charged on the warrant for burglary.

Both men, according to police and news archives, have been arrested numerous times on various charges, many having to do with burglary allegations.

In addition to the Milford and Hudson allegations, police in Tyngsborough, Mass., have charged Barbuti and Yadav in connection with three summertime burglaries in that town.

They each face three counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime, and three counts of malicious destruction of property over $250, according to


The break-ins in which they are accused occurred around 3 a.m. July 28 at Bahama Breeze, and between 3-4 a.m. Aug. 1 at Cazadores Restaurant and Flint’s Pizza, police said.

Barbuti also was arrested in Tyngsborough in March 2016, after police said he was found inside Forrest Marine on Middlesex Road after allegedly breaking into the building.

Yadav, meanwhile, was arrested in July 2016 in Nashua for allegedly assaulting a man and stealing his backpack near the end of Crown Street.

Back in 2013, according to archive records, Yadav, then 21, was arrested and charged with felony escape for allegedly failing to report to Valley Street Jail in Manchester as ordered.

He also was charged that year with felon in possession of a dangerous weapon, for allegedly trying to enter Hillsborough County Superior Court South while in possession of brass knuckles.

Information on the dispositions of those cases wasn’t immediately available.
