FDL PD S.W.A.T. Called Out Sunday Evening

A Sunday evening Domestic Violence incident leads to the FDL PD S.W.A.T. being called into action.

Fond du Lac PD received a call at 7:05 p.m. Sunday from a victim who reported a 33-year old Fond du Lac male was armed with a knife, and threatening to injure the caller.

The male suspect fled the scene before officers arrived, but was later located near Donahue Ct., but attempts to make contact with him were unsuccessful, with the suspect indicating he was planning to harm himself.

Contact was finally made but negotiations began deteriorating, with the SWAT team using an explosive breach to enter the apartment. The male suspect surrendered and was taken into custody. The man was wanted on a number of other charges from previous domestic violence incidents involving the victim caller. The matter remains under investigation.
