La Grange Man Charged In Rape, Kidnapping After Pond Standoff

A La Grange man is in jail under a million dollar bond after they say he raped and kidnapped a woman.

David Lambert was arrested Saturday by Wayne County deputies after a chase and standoff in a pond.

Deputies say the 28 year old was named as a suspect in the attack and he was spotted a short time later. They say Lambert ran from deputies and jumped into a pond and held a knife to his throat, threatening to commit suicide.

After a short standoff, the man was taken into custody and taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital for a minor cut.
