Since it involves crossing state lines, shouldn’t the Feds be involved? Would it be normal for a 26 year old woman to take her 10 year old sister on a date??

Carlton County officials say they have arrested a man in connection to terroristic threats and the kidnapping of two females.
Anthony John Machones and the 26-year-old victim met up at the Black Bear Casino on August 29th and spent most of the day together. Later in the afternoon, the victim and Machones returned to the casino and picked up the victim’s 10-year-sister before driving them to a residence in rural Douglas County Wisconsin.
Officials say after a verbal argument, the two victims left the residence on foot. Machones followed the victims by car and threatened them with physical violence if they did not get in his vehicle. Machones then drove the victims back towards the Black Bear Casino and retrieved a small axe from under his driver’s seat as he continued to verbally threaten the victims. Machones had stopped at a gas station near the casino in Carlton where the victims were able to flag down a passing Fond Du Lac Police Officer and reported the incident.
Carlton County Deputies found Machones at the residence in rural Douglas County Wisconsin, where he was uncooperative and left in a vehicle. Douglas County Deputies attempted to stop Machones but he fled in his vehicle. Machones was ultimately stopped and arrested by Douglas County Deputies and placed in the Douglas County Jail for crimes committed in their county.
The investigation into this crime is on-going between the Carlton County and Douglas County Sheriff’s Offices.
