Kidnapping Suspect Arrested


The Sauk County Sheriff's Department tells NBC 15 News they have the man suspected of kidnapping a 12 year old girl behind bars.

The Sheriff's department says deputies located the car owned by Sean Youngs about 6:00 Friday morning behind his home on County Highway 'W' in the Town of Freedom. Inside the house, they found Youngs sleeping.

"Mr. Youngs was taken into custody without incident," Sauk County Sheriff's Captain Chip Meister says. "He is currently being held in the Sauk County jail under charges, felony charges".

A criminal complaint against Youngs shows he's facing a charge of kidnapping, and two charges of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.

Youngs is a suspect in the armed kidnapping of a 12 year old Reedsburg girl Wednesday afternoon. The girl was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries after she showed up at the doorstep of a Sauk County home Thursday morning.
