Short Standoff Incident At Maplewood Commons Apartments
Fond du Lac Police arrested a 27-year-old Chicago Illinois man at gunpoint Wednesday evening during a standoff incident at the Maplewood Commons apartments in the 900 block of Martin Avenue. Police got a call about a domestic situation. Officer Erik Foster says the man apparently choked a woman. She was able to escape, but two children were still in the apartment with the man. Foster says officers were able to get the children out. Foster says, “The Police were able to get the children out of that apartment and then a short standoff occurred after that between the suspect and police. Shortly after they were removed the man did come out of the apartment and he immediately complied with police orders.” The man is charged with disorderly conduct, battery, strangulation and was wanted on a probation warrant out of Illinois. Three young children were involved in the incident ranging from three to six-years-old. No shots were fired during the incident.
