ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) - Police say a man has been arrested after leading law enforcement on a chase through two counties before breaking into a Rochester home and fighting with the owner.

It’s the second fugitive search in the area in about 12 hours. In the latest incident, officers pursued a suspect in Dodge and Olmsted counties before he bailed out of his car and fled on foot in Rochester Thursday. While officers were checking a neighborhood, a struggle between the suspect and a homeowner spilled out into a front yard. Officers used a stun gun on the suspect and arrested him.

In the other pursuit Wednesday in Olmsted County, a fugitive wanted on two felony warrants fled from a residence into some woods. The Post-Bulletin (https://bit.ly/1k178m5 ) says SWAT team officers, tracking dogs and a State Patrol helicopter were used to search for the man, who is still at large.
