Sheriff: Three injured, two arrested in violent home invasion

The Leelanau County Sheriff's Office and the Michigan State Police spent Friday morning continuing to gather evidence at a home in Cedar following a home invasion

LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The Leelanau County Sheriff's Office and the Michigan State Police spent Friday morning continuing to gather evidence at a home in Cedar following a home invasion.

Deputies and EMS crews were called to the home on South Kasson Street Thursday just before 8 p.m. on an assault involving injuries.

When crews arrived they found three men at the home suffering from severe injuries.

According to the Leelanau County Sheriff, a 78-year-old man received head wounds and stab wounds, a 55-year-old man suffered several blows to the head with a metal object and a 56-year-old man suffered severe stab wounds to the chest and back.

All three men at the home were taken to the hospital for treatment.

According to investigators a 25-year-old woman known to the family, entered the home uninvited with a 33-year-old man.

The suspects allegedly forced a 77-year-old woman into a bedroom to help them find valuable items in the home and then assaulted the men by stabbing them with a knife and hitting them with a metal flashlight.

The Leelanau County Sheriff said the suspects then took off in a 2004 yellow Suzuki SUV.


A Statewide broadcast was made and an off duty Wexford County Detective observed the Suzuki westbound on M-115.

Troopers pulled the vehicle over on 14 Road and M-115 near Mesick.

Troopers said they made multiple commands for the male driver to get out of the vehicle, which were ignored and the driver and female passenger fled the scene of the traffic stop in the vehicle.

According to police, a 20-mile pursuit through Wexford and Manistee counties continued down multiple seasonal roads, before the suspect turned down a dead-end two-track and hit the police car head-on.


The suspect vehicle continued traveling eastbound on 13 Mile Road near Yates Road in Manistee County, where troopers executed a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT) maneuver on the suspect vehicle.

The suspect vehicle ran off the left side of the roadway where it rolled over on its roof.

The 25-year-old woman from Glen Arbor and the 33-year-old man from Interlochen, are lodged in the Leelanau County Jail on attempted murder, armed robbery and home invasion 1st degree charges.

The suspects are expected to be arraigned on the charges Monday morning.

The male suspect has an extensive criminal history which includes weapons and drug offenses.

The female suspect has convictions for retail fraud and operating a vehicle intoxicated.
