Two cops and a plumber wrestle suspect in Fort Dodge

FORT DODGE, IA - A Fort Dodge man, wanted by police is behind bars, after stiking two officers and a plumber, who helped take the guy into custody.

"We don't want to encourage people to get involved, but in this case it worked out pretty well."  Fort Dodge Police Captain Ryan Gruenberg said.

Officers spotted 40-year-old Donald Rundall III Monday morning, who was wanted on a Parole Violation.

Captain Gruenberg says Rundall struck the officer who tried to arrest him, then ran.   A  plumber, Dan Riley, stopped and helped police catch Rundall.

"The individual struck me in the forehead, cutting my forehead." Riley said. "Then I grabbed the guy and took him down to the ground, and held him there until officers arrived."  

Riley is a former police officer.  

Police say Rundall struck the same officer again and hit a second officer too.

They're okay, Rundall's in the Webster County Jail facing a host of charges, including Assault, Probation Violation, Interference with Official Acts, and drug possession.
