A kidnapping suspect was arrested after he allegedly led U.S. Marshals on a high-speed pursuit from Lake County into McHenry County Thursday morning, authorities said.
The Kenosha County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Office was dispatched on December 22 to the 38300 block of 87th Street near Powers Lake for a call of an unknown problem.
Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. David Wright said the dispatcher who answered the call overheard a woman screaming and a male threatening the woman.
Several minutes later another call was received by dispatchers for a report of a male attacking a female at the intersection of 83 north and STH-50.
The two calls were determined to be related.
The investigation revealed that the suspect, Justin M. Bollinger, 27, of Twin Lakes, had broken into his girlfriend’s residence.
Bollinger forced her out of the residence against her will and into his vehicle.
The vehicle came to a stop for a red light at STH 50 and STH 83 North and the victim took the opportunity to flee from Bollinger’s vehicle.
Bollinger fled the scene and has been on the run since that day. A warrant for his arrest was issued.
The US Marshals Service around 10:40 a.m. Thursday attempted to take Bollinger into custody at a residence located in Wadsworth.
Bollinger fled in a white Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck and led U.S. Marshals officers on a high-speed chase.
The pursuit went westbound on Route 173 and the Illinois-Wisconsin state line.
Bollinger eventually abandoned his vehicle at Route 173 and Siedschlag Road in Spring Grove. He fled northbound on foot.
Kenosha sheriff’s deputies responded to the area and after an extensive search with the U.S. Marshals Office were unable to locate Bollinger.
Bollinger was taken into custody without incident later that evening at his father’s residence by Kenosha sheriff’s deputies.
Bollinger, who is facing a slew of charges including kidnapping and burglary, remains held in the Kenosha County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
