A 38-year-old man has been caught after evading law enforcement officers for nearly eight hours in southeast Nebraska.

Authorities say Matthew Mundhenke, of Milford, was arrested a little before 4 a.m. Tuesday in the front yard of a house in Seward.

Seward County Sheriff Joe Yocum says the search for Mundhenke began around 8:15 p.m. Monday.

Witnesses told police that Mundhenke had threatened people and assaulted one at a home in Staplehurst before fleeing. Officers followed his tracks in the snow and spotted him near a ravine, but he got away.

He was arrested several hours later on suspicion of several crimes, including domestic assault and using a weapon to commit a felony.

Online records say Mundhenke remained in the jail Wednesday. Online court records don't yet list the case.
