FDL Man Charged For Assault

Bond has been set at $20,000 for a Fond du Lac man suspected of assaulting a 19-year-old woman at a Fond du Lac apartment complex Monday night. Jeremy Walton made his initial appearance in Fond du Lac County Court Wednesday on charges stemming from the incident. When police arrived at the apartment in the 300 block of North Peters Avenue no one would answer the door, but the victim yelled for help and officers forced entry. Walton jumped off a 2nd floor balcony to escape, but police used a K9 to track him and found him in a storage unit he allegedly broke into. He faces two felony charges of intimidating a victim and false imprisonment and five misdemeanors. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Friday, December 30th.
