Cedar Community Planning to pitch in for Victims in Cedar Attempted Murder

The Cedar community is reeling Friday after hearing of the attempted murder and robbery that happened Thursday.

The Leelanau County Sheriff says they believe two people broke into a home in Cedar, tried to steal cash and other valuables and stabbed or hit three people living there.

As of Friday night, they’re awaiting charges.

The Sheriff Mike Borkovich says both of the people arrested and charged in this case have criminal histories that include drugs and retail fraud.

He says the suspects went into the home, demanding cash and other valuables.

“There were other individuals in the home at the time, a 78 year old, a 55 year old, and a 56 year old in the home, between them, they were either stabbed or hit with a blunt object,” explained Borkovich.

Neighbors are planning good deeds to help the family and victims in this difficult time.

They’re coordinating on the “Overheard in Leelanau County” Facebook page.
