Windom squad car damaged as suspect attempts to flee

A Princeton man was arrested for multiple offenses yesterday, but not before creating quite a stir in a Windom residential area.
The incident began at 8:30 a.m. when police were called to the 100 block of Sixth Avenue. It had been reported that a female was being threatened by a man with a knife.
According to the report, the man was damaging her property.
When officers arrived, the man, later identified as Justin Charles Olson, 29, of Princeton, tried to escape in a pickup. During the escape effort, the truck struck a police vehicle.
Olson has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault, felony domestic assault, fleeing a peace officer in a vehicle, first-degree damage to property, third-degree damage to property and interruption or interference with an emergency phone call.
