WYOMING, Mich. - A trio of people from West Michigan are now the center of a nationwide manhunt.

Police have told us there are victims in at least three different parts of the State and as on now, the three remain on the loose.

The crimes they are accused of include a stabbing in Wyoming, a carjacking in Greenville, and an assault and break-in in Macomb County.

Now the U.S. Marshals have joined in the hunt for the trio.

On Saturday morning one of the tenants staying at the Jim Williams Motel on Division Avenue in Wyoming heard a knock on his door.

"I just answered the door not thinking of anything otherwise," said the man who chose not to be identified.  "Guy told me it was a robbery, stabbed me, pushed his way in, took my money and left.  Didn't take but a matter of a few minutes."

He was stabbed in the throat and then the stomach.  The victim said the man holding the knife was 25-year-old Daniel Leussenkamp.  He said he had never seen the man before but he doesn't think the attack was random.

The victim thinks he was set up by the woman staying with him.

"It stunned me that she was even capable of being associated with anything in that nature," he said.

The woman he is referring to is 20-year-old Kimberly Wonsey.  He said she had been staying with him at the motel for about two months prior to the attack.

"She could have been just a really good actor but she left with him and she did act like she was a little freaked out because I was bleeding pretty heavy at the time," he said.

From there, police said the couple met up with 25-year-old Kevin Seely made their way to Greenville where they reportedly carjacked a woman in the parking of Meijer around 9:30 Sunday morning.

Police said that Wonsey asked the victim of the carjacking for a ride to Danish Kingdom Park and when the woman agreed all three of the suspects got into the car.  Police said Leussenkamp held a screwdriver to the woman's throat, stole her purse and the car but left her unharmed.

Then, the Macomb County Sheriff said the three drove to Mount Clemens, on the east side of Michigan, where they assaulted the mother of Leussenkamp's child and left her tied to chair.

The details of the alleged crime spree have left some in shock.  Ned Honeysette said he let Leussenkamp stay with him as a favor.

"He stayed in the basement for two months, no trouble," he said.

But now, like the stabbing victim, he fears for the safety of others.

"My part was foolish for even letting him in the house," he said.  "I didn't know he was this dangerous but he needs to be off the streets."

Police said they believe the trio may have left the state.
