Two of the people arrested during the traffic stop on Highway 29 near Marathon are out of jail on $100 signature bonds. A lieutenant with the Marathon County Sheriff's Department says the child's 18-year-old father was arrested along with two 20 year olds. All three were charged with misdemeanors. The lieutenant also expects the child's father to be charged with interfering with parental custody.


Three people have been arrested following an attempted abduction in Marathon County.

According to a Wausau Police Patrol Lieutenant, a 3-year-old child was taken from its mother's residence by its paternal father.

Marathon County Sheriff's deputies assisted Wausau Police in locating the vehicle on Highway 29, near exit 156.

An eyewitness reports seeing deputies with guns drawn while ordering three occupants out of a 4-door sedan with their hands up. Two males and one female were placed in handcuffs, including the child's paternal father. Drugs were found inside the vehicle.

The Patrol Lieutenant says the vehicle's occupants will face drug charges. Other charges will likely be added.

The 3-year-old child was found safe inside the vehicle.

A portion of Highway 29 was closed during the incident. The highway is now open.
