FOND DU LAC COUNTY — Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s officials say a 19-year-old Fond du Lac man will likely face three charges of kidnapping, and presumably other charges after abducting three young children from Fond du Lac, and taking them to Menomonee Falls.

Officials say the man took the three children (ages 3, 4 and 5) from a Fond du Lac residence following an alleged earlier domestic incident with the children’s mother in Oshkosh.

Fond du Lac officials responded to the scene after the children were abducted, and began to initiate the Amber Alert system.

A short time later, the suspect was apparently involved in a vehicle pursuit in Menomonee Falls, which ended with the suspect crashing his vehicle.

Officials say the suspect then attempted to flee on foot, but was taken into custody.

The children were taken to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee for treatment of non-specified injuries.

The suspect is expected to face three charges of kidnapping in the City of Fond du Lac and presumably other charges in Menomonee Falls and Oshkosh.

Officials say this investigation is ongoing.
