The incident reportedly began when officers approached Ian MacPherson just after 2 a.m. Friday morning because he matched the description of a suspect in a gas station armed robbery the night before.
Officer Hardy is in stable condition. Officer O'Connor was treated at a hospital and released.
Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard said MacPherson was not shot or otherwise wounded. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Manchester District Court on Monday.
