Chase Through Our Area Ends In Arrest In Windom

Windom, Minnesota — A high-speed chase that started in our area has ended in the arrest of a South Sioux City, Nebraska man in Windom, Minnesota.

The pursuit started in Iowa with the Iowa State Patrol attempting to stop a car, which was later found to have been driven by 22-year-old Yonis Ahmed Abdi of South Sioux City on Sunday.

We are told that the Minnesota State Patrol informed the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and then the Windom Police Department of a white vehicle driving at over a hundred miles per hour on Minnesota 60.

At 11:50 a.m. Jackson Sheriff’s Deputies say they told the Minnesota State Patrol that a white Chevy Malibu was traveling quickly north towards Heron Lake. It apparently entered Windom at 94 miles per hour, dodging police and driving recklessly.

Authorities say Abdi finally lost control on Minnesota 60 at 550th Avenue at 12:04 p.m. He allegedly ran into a nearby cornfield on foot and was soon captured.

Abdi is charged in Minnesota with receiving stolen property, theft of a motor vehicle, reckless driving and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. At last report he was being held in the Cottonwood County Jail.
