BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - A New Salem man is in custody after Bismarck police say he broke into a home and led officers on a high-speed chase.

A witness told law enforcement that he heard a woman calling for help and saw 40-year-old Richard Klatt climbing through a broken window of a home Tuesday morning. Court documents report that Klatt had tried to profess his love to the woman.

Police say they found Klatt and he fled westbound on I-94 at more than 100 mph.

Klatt was arrested and is charged with felony reckless endangerment, fleeing, criminal trespass, and driving under suspension.
