Bellevue, NE - A bizarre man hunt in Bellevue left people watching the chaos unfold, on edge. Police described Diego Campos as a suicidal man on the run with a knife. It took an all out man hunt to find him.
It started early Friday morning when Bellevue police officers went to a home to check on a possible sexual assault. When they got there, Campos had already taken off. Through wooded areas and tall cornfields at least 9 officers, 2 canines and Omaha's Able 1 helicopter circled and scoured the area of 25th Street.
The chaos had neighbors up the street nervous and scared.
After a four hour man hunt and one hour standoff, officers coaxed Campos out of the underground he barricaded himself in.
Bellevue police say they don't know his relationship with the little girl he's accused of sexually assaulting.
They plan to charge Campos after further investigation.
