A Rockford man accused of attempted murder is in custody, thanks to a tip.
The tip led officers from four law enforcement agencies, including Rockford Police, Beloit Police, and the Rock Co. Sheriff’s Dept., to a home on Wisconsin Avenue just off Park Avenue in Beloit.
Investigators found William Opsahl IV inside. He was wanted for breaking into a home on Yonge St. in Rockford last month. Police say he nearly beat the victim to death. The two had what police describe as a domestic relationship. Opsahl now faces several charges. The most serious is attempted murder.
He’s currently being held in the Rock Co. Jail and will be extradited to Winnebago County.
