Multiple members from the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Washington County Sheriff’s Office with am arrest of a man in the Town of West Bend Tuesday, January 16, 2024.

Around noon, multiple officers from both counties began to converge on a house in a small subdivision about three miles southeast of Allenton.

However, shortly after, the school issued a statement saying the situation was resolved.

“Attention Parents: Regarding the notice sent out by the district at 3:36 PM, the police situation near the area of Division Road and Cedar View Drive, just west of Big Cedar Lake (Cheryl Lane, Debbie Lane, and Hickory Knoll Drive) has been resolved. Roads are now open. Bus routes will drop off as normal.”

This is a developing story and more details of the incident will be reported as information is released by the sheriff, office.
