Homeless man charged with breaking into friend's home
The Reporter Staff
A 53-year-old homeless man was charged today after he allegedly broke into a
46-year-old Fond du Lac man's home and threatened to slit his throat early
Wilbur Campbell made an initial court appearance on charges of battery,
disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property in Fond du Lac County
Circuit Court. He received a signature bond.
Steven J. Andrews, 30 14th St., had worked with Campbell and let him stay at
his home in the past. Campbell asked to stay overnight Friday but Andrews
ended up locking him out because he said his landlord told him guests were
not allowed, according to a Fond du Lac Police Department report.
Campbell showed up around 1 a.m. Saturday and began pounding on the door,
according to the report.
Campbell allegedly broke the doorknob, walked into Andrews' bedroom where he'd
been sleeping and started yelling at Andrews for locking the door, according
to the report.
He then threatened to slit Andrews' throat, the report said.
Andrews started walking to Kwik Trip, where he hoped to call police, and
Campbell followed him. On the walk, Campbell ended up shoving Andrews
against a business near the corner of 14th and Main streets and punched
Andrews, according to the report.
Andrews eventually made it to Kwik Trip, 456 S. Main St., where he asked an
employee to call police, according to the report.
Andrews locked himself in the Kwik Trip bathroom until police arrived.
Campbell was outside Kwik Trip when police arrived and he was arrested.
