Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson announced early Thursday that authorities from Atchison Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service have worked together to locate and apprehend a 30-year-old Pennsylvania man wanted in connections with crimes that recently occurred at a residence in Atchison.

Cameron W. Jensen was wanted on an Atchison County District Court warrant charging him with two counts aggravated battery, one count of aggravated burglary and one count criminal restrain, Wilson said in a press release. The charges arose as the result of an investigation of crimes that occurred July 23 and Aug. 6 at a residence in the 300 block of Parallel Street.

The U.S. Marshals located and arrested Jensen on Wednesday in Erie, Penn., Wilson said.

Atchison police launched an investigation that centered on an intrusion that occurred during early morning hours of Aug. 6 in a home along Parallel Street. A 45-year-old male resident was present at the time and suffered injuries from the intruder. The victim was beaten with an object that required hospital treatment, Wilson had initially reported.

The victim was familiar with who the suspect was prior to the attack, but the two men were not personally acquainted.
