FOND DU LAC (AP) -

Police have arrested a 29-year-old man sought in the abduction of three children from a Fond du Lac home.

Officers were chasing the suspect in the Village of Menomonee Falls Monday when he crashed his sport utility vehicle. The man tried to run away but was arrested.

The children, ages 3, 4 and 5, were found in the SUV. Police say they were taken to a Milwaukee hospital for treatment.

Fond du Lac police were called by Oshkosh police shortly after 5 p.m. about a man wanted for a domestic battery in Oshkosh. At about the same time, police received an abandoned 911 call from a home in Fond du Lac.

Police determined the suspect in the Oshkosh incident had abducted three children whose mother was the domestic battery victim.
