Stabbing victim relieved crime wave suspects in custody

Wyoming, Mich. (WZZM) – A 50-year-old Wyoming man stabbed during what police call a crime spree is relieved the three suspects are in custody.

"That's good," says Jeff, the only name the wounded man wants published. "I'll sleep good tonight."

Jeff says he and girlfriend Kimberly Wonsey were sleeping in his room at the Jim Williams Motel on Division Avenue early Saturday morning.

At about 3:30 a.m. he says Daniel Leussenkamp and Kevin Seely knocked on the door.

"I got up and opened the door, and Lessenkamp said it was a robbery and stabbed me," recalls Jeff. "He forced his way back into the house and stabbed me again. He told Kimberly to get her clothes, she was leaving with them. They took what money I had and left."

Jeff says Leussenkamp and Wonsey had a relationship before Leussenkamp was sentenced to prison.

After his recent release, the couple decided to get back together. He sees that as the main motive for the assault.

"We had been together for a few months and from what I understand he just got out of prison," he explains. "They wanted to rekindle the relationship and she had me fooled. She could have told me that she wanted to go back with this guy and I would have had no hard feelings. They didn't do it that way and it was unfortunate for me."

The following day police say Leussenkamp, Wonsey and Seely carjacked and robbed a woman in Greenville and assaulted and robbed a woman in Macomb County.

The crime spree ended Wednesday when Leussenkamp and Wonsey were captured at the York Creek Apartments in Alpine Township.

"They don't live here," says resident Sarah Newhouse. "They said they know someone in the building."

Also Wednesday, Seely was apprehended in Little Falls, NY.

"Yes sir, I was pretty badly injured," says Jeff, exposing one jagged wound at his throat and another down his lower abdomen. "I do believe I was lucky."
