A Lindenhurst man was captured by U.S. Marshals in Wisconsin after an arrest warrant was issued for him alleging he strangled a member in his household and abducted a child.
Tod W. Harig, 32, of the 2400 block of Plum Tree Road in Lindenhurst, was charged with domestic battery causing bodily harm and child abduction.
The Lindenhurst Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for Harig on Wednesday. The warrant carries a $250,000 bond.
Lake County Sheriff Spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said that Harig allegedly battered and strangled an adult household member. He then took a child that he is the father of, in violation of a court order, and fled from the residence.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team and U.S. Marshals Service — Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force launched a fugitive apprehension investigation.
Lindenhurst police officers developed information Harig was possibly avoiding apprehension by hiding at a family member’s residence in Lone Rock, Wisconsin, Covelli said.
Harig was staying at a residence in the 33600 block of Yeager Lane in Lone Rock, Wisconsin. The sheriff’s warrants team contacted U.S. Marshals in Madison and requested assistance in the apprehension of Harig, Covelli said.
U.S. Marshals successfully apprehended Harig without incident at his family’s home. He was transported to the Richland County, Wisconsin jail pending extradition hearings.
