A Providence man was arrested there Tuesday morning and charged with murder, home invasion and armed robbery in the June attack on an Attleboro home, said Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for Bristol District Attorney Sam Sutter.

Jose Polanco, 23, is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence District Court on a charge of being a fugitive from justice, where police will arrange to extricate him to Massachusetts.

“The arrest today resulted from an intensive, almost five month long investigation by the District Attorney’s Office, the Massachusetts State Police, the Massachusetts State Police Crime Laboratory, the Attleboro Police Department and the Providence Police Department,” Miliote said. “In particular, District Attorney Sutter would like to commend Attleboro Police Detective James Cote. Detective Cote’s tremendous efforts and investigative work have allowed us to take this important step in seeking justice in this case.”

Attleboro Police arrived at 508 Washington St. at about 5:30 a.m. on June 23, where they found Dylan Adams, 24, fatally wounded. We died later at Sturdy Memorial Hospital.

Adams had been beaten and show and his 25-year-old girlfriend was also seriously injured.

“Although today marks just the first step in the legal process, nevertheless with all of the time and energy and diligence that went into this investigation, I would like to congratulate those prosecutors from my office, and the detectives from Attleboro Police and my State Police Unit, who have been involved in this case,” Sutter said. “And I would like to single out Detective James Cote, who threw his heart and soul into this investigation, and did it with great skill and effectiveness.”
