Belding man charged with 8-county felony following alleged stabbing at Deerfield apartments
A Belding man is lodged in Isabella County Jail and accused of stabbing two people early Sunday morning at Deerfield apartments in Union Township.
Twenty-two year old Todd William Gerheiser is charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, two counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, one count of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent.
As previously reported by Central Michigan Life, Michigan State Police troopers from the Mount Pleasant post were dispatched shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday to the scene of a large fight at the complex, 3400 E. Deerfield Road.
Upon arrival, a group of people ran toward troopers. One was a victim, covered in blood. He told the troopers he had been stabbed and pointed toward the suspect, who was also running toward officers, according to a release issued Monday morning by MSP.
Troopers then ordered the suspect to the ground, where he was then secured and arrested around 1:15 a.m.
The investigation continued with the location of the weapon and interviews. The victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The Isabella County Prosecutor's Office issued an 8-county felony warrant for Gerheiser. His bond is set for 10 percent of $800,000.
Gerheiser has a preliminary exam scheduled for 8:15 a.m. Thursday.
Gerheiser is not listed in the CMU directory and not believed to be a student at the university.
