Mosquitoes force Wisconsin robbery suspect to surrender

A Wisconsin robbery suspect reportedly surrendered to the police after being bitten by multiple mosquitoes.

A Wisconsin robbery suspect reportedly surrendered to the police after he couldn’t take the mosquitoes to bite him.

John Wilson allegedly led Campbellsport police officers on a chase Tuesday as he drove another suspect, who has not yet been arrested, in the vicinity of a store he had just robbed, WDJT-TV reported.

Authorities reportedly followed Wilson as part of a high-speed chase, before Wilson got out of the car and fled on foot.

The area was flooded with mosquitoes, so many that the Chief Thomas Dornbrook said sheriff’s office officials arrived, he immediately asked for bug spray.

“That is the first thing I asked, or he could give me some spray because it was crazy,” Dornbrook told the news station.

Almost an hour later, Wilson gave himself up to the police because he could no longer bear the mosquito bites on his skin.

“If we love him with handcuffs, he asked us to wipe his forehead, because he had 15-20 mosquitoes on his forehead, at that moment,” the head of the police said.

“I think that if it were not for the mosquitoes, he would have kept walking and try to get a ride from someone,” Dornbrook said. “I tease Sergeant Zitlow, he along with a million mosquitoes helped with the capture of the man.”

Wilson was reportedly charged with the flight officers, retail theft and obstructing an officer.
