1/26/17 – A woman and four children have escaped injury, after police in Fond du Lac rescued them during a five-hour standoff. Officers were called at about 1:45am Wednesday on a report of a domestic abuse incident involving a gun at a north side apartment complex. Assistant Police Chief Steve Thiry says one of the victims texted an acquaintance who got the police involved. The victim kept officers and a SWAT team updated with texts at the scene. The standoff ended as officers forced their way in, rescued the woman and children, and arrested a 25-year-old man. Officials say they did not find a gun in an initial sweep of the apartment.
