By Beth Milligan | Jan. 24, 2020

A 53-year-old man was arrested in Elmwood Township Wednesday after assaulting his daugher and stabbing her friend, sending the younger man to the hospital.

Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a residence on Lucille Street just after 5:30pm Wednesday. A 20-year-old woman told authorities a 23-year-old male friend had come over to visit. During the visit, her father became angry and punched his daughter three times in the face. The friend intervened, and was stabbed with a knife by the suspect. The victim fled the residence and was taken to Munson Medical Center by a friend. He suffered a stab wound to the back and a collapsed lung, and remains in the hospital. The daugher was treated at the scene by Elmwood Fire and Rescue for injuries to her face.

The father fled the residence on foot after the attack, but deputies found him hiding in a shed a short distance away. The suspect was arrested and lodged at the Leelanau County Jail for domestic assault and assault with intent to do great bodily harm.
