Home invasion suspect arrested after dramatic chase into Wisconsin

He's accused of kidnapping, sexually assaulting a St. Louis Park woman.

A man wanted in a violent St. Louis Park home invasion is in custody following a police pursuit that ended with a crash in Wisconsin.

On Wednesday, authorities in St. Croix County, Wisconsin, got wind of a black truck coming their way — with U.S. marshals and Washington County, Minnesota, deputies right behind. 

A press release from the St. Croix sheriff lays out what happened when the suspect entered the area, driving the wrong way down the highway:

After a failed attempt at using stop sticks to flatten the truck's tires, a Minnesota deputy was able to stop the fugitive with a PIT maneuver. This caused the truck to collide with a disabled vehicle on the shoulder, which ultimately sent it crashing into a ditch. 

No one was inside that disabled vehicle at the time. 

As for the suspect in the black truck, he was taken into custody and transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries suffered in the crash. 

His current condition is not known. The Wisconsin State Patrol is now investigating the crash.

As FOX 9 notes, the suspect was wanted in connection with a Nov. 3 break-in and sexual assault at a St. Louis Park home.

The woman reported that, after the assault, her attacker took her to two different ATMs and forced her to withdraw cash, the station says.

It's unclear if the man has been charged yet.
