DECORAH – A Decorah teen who was the subject of a manhunt following what authorities called “brutal attack” has been detained in Wisconsin.
Dalton James Adam, 18, was arrested Friday and was taken to the Crawford County Jail in Prairie du Chien, Wis. He is awaiting extradition to Iowa on charges of willful injury causing serious injury. Bond was set at $50,000.
Another teen, Jacob Taylor Seelinger, 17, of Decorah, was arrested and charged as an adult with felony willful injury causing serious injury and transported to the Winneshiek County Jail. Bond was set at $25,000. He was transported to a juvenile detention facility, according to the sheriff's office.
The assault took place about midnight Thursday.
Court records indicate deputies and medics were called to 1775 Old Stage Road and found David Hanson, 46, with a bloody and swollen face. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.
The Sheriff’s Office, Iowa State Patrol and Decorah Police Department, along with the assistance of the Decorah Fire Department, searched for Adam after he disappeared from the Freeport area of Winnshiek County.
Court records show that police responded to a burglary report at the Old State Road home on January where a door had been kicked open and a bookcase was overturned.
