Officers from multiple agencies pursued Anderson, who broke into a house on Third Avenue South and then jumped from a window when confronted by the homeowner. Officers chased him through an alley in the 200 block of Second Avenue South to the marsh, where he was arrested.

The victim, who knew Anderson, underwent surgery for a stab wound to his arm, police said.

Anderson faces charges of substantial battery, theft, criminal trespass, resisting officers, bail jumping and damage to property when he appears Monday in La Crosse County Circuit Court. He is jailed on a $10,000 cash bond.
