FREMONT, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say they have taken a suspect into custody after two people were stabbed during a break-in in Fremont.
It happened around 7 p.m. Wednesday at Locust Hill Apartments in the area of State Street and N. Stone Road. The Fremont Police Department said a man broke in to a second-floor apartment. The two people inside were attacked with a knife.
Jim Collins, who lives directly below the couple, told News 8 they are planning a wedding. He said he didn’t hear anything until police and an ambulance arrived.
“We heard a lot of thumping,” Collins said. “I think it could have been the ambulance taking them down the stairs.”
The two victims were taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries was unknown Thursday.
“You know, this is stuff you see on TV,” said Alice VanVleet, who also lives at the apartment complex, “not in your backyard and it’s a little scary.”
The attacker ran away before officers arrived.
On Thursday, Fremont police and the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Office said there were at the scene of a “critical incident” in the area of 72nd Street and Croswell Avenue south of Fremont. There, the suspect was arrested without incident, Fremont Police Chief Tim Rodwell confirmed to News 8.
His name was not immediately released.
