FOND DU LAC- A man has been arrested after authorities say he battered a woman in Oshkosh, abducted her three young children in Fond du Lac, and then crashed a vehicle in the Village of Menomonee Falls following a police pursuit. 

He was taken into custody after trying to flee the accident on foot.

The three abducted children, 3, 4, and 5, were taken from the crashed vehicle and transported to Children's Hospital for treatment Monday evening.  Their current conditions aren't known.

Following the kidnappings, an Amber Alert was issued for the three kids taken from a home on Hawthorne Dr. in Fond du Lac.

The suspect is expected to face kidnapping and other criminal charges stemming from his alleged actions in Fond du Lac, Menomonee Falls and Oshkosh.

Authorities didn't say what, if any, relationship there was between the suspect, the victim, and her three kids.
