Pulaski school put in lockdown as police pursue suspect

PULASKI, Wis. - Glenbrook Elementary School was placed on a precautionary lockdown for a short period of time Tuesday as police pursued a man wanted for a domestic violence incident, as well as an active felony warrant for his arrest.

Pulaski Police say that Russell Nordquist, 38, fled from police after an officer recognized him, and attempted to pull his car over.

Nordquist is said to have driven to the 200 Block of Front Street, where he exited the car and entered his girlfriend's house.

The suspect then jumped out of a window of the residence to avoid capture, and ran into an unoccupied, unlocked house on the 100 block of Lincoln Street.

He exited that residence after the homeowner returned, and was on the phone with the Brown County 911 dispatch center.

Police say he then ran to the 100 block of Johnson Street, where he entered an unlocked garage before being apprehended by officers.

Glenbrook School was put on lockdown for a short period of time during the pursuit.

Nordquist was transported to the Brown County Jail on the felony warrant, along with several other charges.
