Waukesha County manhunt ends, suspect taken into custody

UPDATE: The Waukesha County Sheriff's Office says Donald Berry has been caught. We're awaiting more details about his capture and will provide them as soon as they are available.

WAUKESHA COUNTY -- Waukesha County authorities are looking for a wanted man who may be hiding out in the area.

Waukesha deputies approached 43-year-old Donald Berry on September 22 around 5:20 p.m. as he walked on I-43 near Big Bend. Officials say he gave deputies a false name and ran away.

A citizen spotted Berry running from an area in the Town of Waukesha near Townline and Guthrie roads September 23 around 8:30 a.m.

It's not clear what Berry was doing in the area before he ran, or if there was any contact with person who reported seeing him.

Officials say Berry is wanted for a parole violation in Springfield, IL and also has a warrant for his arrest in Rockford, IL for assault. He's also wanted by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office for obstruction. 

Berry has a long history of violent behavior, including battery, armed robbery, and home invasion, according to authorities. 

The Waukesha County Sheriff's Office says the department spent more than 5 hours looking for Berry in barns, sheds and fields with help from the Wisconsin State Patrol and Village of Big Bend Police.

Berry has relatives in New Berlin and in the City of Waukesha, and may be trying to get in touch with them, according to officials. 

He was last seen in a white t-shirt and gray sweatpants. 

Anyone who sees Berry is asked to stay back and call police.
