Nationwide Manhunt Underway For Trio Accused Of Violent Crime Spree
MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) - A nationwide manhunt is underway for three people accused of a statewide crime spree that started near Grand Rapids and reached all the way to metro Detroit.
Police have been trying to track down 25-year-old Daniel Leussenkamp Jr., 25-year-old Kevin Seely and 20-year-old Kimberly Wonsey since their crime spree started last weekend with an attack on a man at a hotel in Wyoming, near Grand Rapids.
The 50-year-old victim, who is apparently acquainted with at least one of the suspects, told police the trio forced their way inside his hotel room around 3 a.m. Saturday after knocking on the door. The victim said he was stabbed several times by two men who then robbed him before fleeing the scene with a woman.
The next day, the trio allegedly carjacked an elderly woman at a Meijer store in Greenville, about 40 miles away from the first crime scene. The woman told police she was leaving the store when another woman, believed to be Wonsey, approached her and asked for a ride. After the victim and the woman got into the victim’s car, two men allegedly jumped in the backseat.
The victim told police one of the men held a screwdriver to her throat and ordered her to drive to a nearby park, where they allegedly forced her from the vehicle and drove off.
Police say the trio then traveled more than 160 miles to Mount Clemens, where they apparently broke into a home and assaulted a woman.
The woman, allegedly a childhood friend of Leussenkamp’s, told police the group showed up at her home on Sunday afternoon. According to reports, the woman was allegedly assaulted and robbed before the trio allegedly tied her to a chair and fled the scene.
Police no longer believe the trio is in Michigan and have enlisted the help of the U.S. Marshals to locate the suspects.
