GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One of three suspects in a crime spree that included a stabbing, carjacking and assault will soon be back in Michigan.

Kevin Seely, 25, of Belding was arraigned Wednesday on a fugitive warrant in Herkimer County, NY, and waived extradition proceedings.

That means he will soon be returned to Michigan. Michigan officials will go to New York to collect him.

Seely was arrested July 23 in Little Falls, NY. That was the same day 25-year-old Daniel Lessenkamp and 20-year-old Kimberly Wonsey were arrested at York Creek Apartments, north of Grand Rapids.

Police say the three went on a crime spree that started when they robbed a man at a Wyoming motel in the early hours of July 19. Leussenkamp also allegedly stabbed that man with a knife.

Then, according to authorities, the trio carjacked a elderly woman in Greenville on July 20. They allegedly dropped her off at a park in the town and then took off in her car.

And the three are suspected in an assault and robbery in Mount Clemens, near Detroit.

Leussenkamp has already been formally charged with four felonies in the Wyoming attack.
