Charges expected Monday for burglar who crashed into Burnsvile Daycare

A Burnsville man is awaiting charges after a car chase ended in the man crashing into a local private daycare.

Willie Alfonso Brown, 33, is being held in the Dakota County Jail with pending charges of second-degree assault, terroristic threats and second-degree burglary, in a Pioneer Press story.

Brown was allegedly committed a burglary in Burnsville and pointed a gun at the homeowner who interrupted the burglary. Brown fled in a vehicle, with the homeowner chasing after him until Brown allegedly lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a home that is also a private daycare, according to KSAX News.

Brown fled on foot and was arrested shortly after.

No one was hurt and the children being cared for were sent to a nearby school. Two nearby schools, Nicollet Junior High and Sky Oaks Elementary, were put on lockdown, though the buildings were mostly empty due to spring break, said the Star Tribune.
