A Woburn man who allegedly committed two violent acts in Malden was arrested after being tracked down in southern New Hampshire, police said.

Police said McFeeley injured two people he knew in a confrontation on Pine Street at about 5 p.m. May 25, and was driven from the scene by an unidentified accomplice.

A few minutes later, he got out of the car on Pleasant Street and demanded a man give him cell phone. The two began to struggle, and McFeeley stabbed the man and fled in the car, police said.

With the help of the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department, McFeeley was tracked to Derry, N.H., where he was arrested without incident and extradited to Massachusetts.
