Police Searching for Man Accused of Breaking into Apartment, Attacking Woman

Fond du Lac Police are searching for a man wanted in connection to a burglary and assault earlier this week. Officers responded to the Oakwood Apartments on South Main Street around 12:45am Tuesday morning – where a person claimed she was outside the apartment, but the suspect was inside. 

The victim says 26-year old Brandon Chandler had broken into her home, struck her in the face, and strangled her to the point she could not breathe. At some point, she was able to escape and contact police. Officers set up a perimeter and searched the apartment using a camera-operating robot and a K-9 unit, but were unable to locate Chandler. He is also wanted on an outstanding warrant.
