WYOMING, Mich. – Wyoming police have a arrested a woman suspected of stabbing her mother and step-father with a hatchet and knife.

Officers believe the stabbing happened at a home in the 100 block of Freedom Street SE in Wyoming.

Amber Lynn Wilson, 28, is now facing two counts of attempted murder and is being held in the Kent County Jail.

Police became aware of the situation early Wednesday morning when the woman’s mother and step-father flagged down an officer for help near Clyde Park and 28th Street.

The victims explained that the family member, who lived with the couple at a home off Freedom Street, was likely still at the house. The mother and step-father, who both suffered multiple stab wounds, were taken to the hospital.

The Wyoming Police Department Tactical Unit and Crisis Negotiators were dispatched to the home and set up a perimeter to secure the neighborhood and find the suspect.

The swat team eventually made forced entry into the home, but the suspect was gone. Due to evidence inside, it appears she climbed out of a basement bedroom window, according to Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody.

A wide search was done and detectives tracked the suspect to the area of 36th Street and Clyde Park Avenue where she was taken into custody. She was not cooperative with police.

“A motive is unclear at this time and would be pure speculation,” said Chief Carmody.

FOX 17 has also learned that in February of 2012, a personal protection order was issued against Wilson.

There is no indication that the PPO has any connection to the events that took place at her Wyoming home on Wednesday.

The step-father has been released from the hospital.

Neighbors who know the family were shocked about the chain of events.

“That sounds like something out of a horror movie, I don’t know how you could be okay after that,” said Annie Farmer, who was caring for the family’s dog while they were at the hospital.

Wilson could be arraigned as early as Thursday morning.

      misprint on reporters behalf the step father is in his late 70s a very good man i know them personally the daughter was in a car accident years ago and has mental issues. shes an adult treatment cannot be done to her without her approval. or until shes done something like this now she will spend her life in a mental institution.

      City of Wyoming police force protocol, Act first then ask questions later…or not at all.
      Seriously, calling out a swat team for one person? Don't you people question the mental condition of your police force there?

  • Really?!

    Dear Truth,

    You speak of being educated yet I find it very ironic that every post you have made tonight is putting down an entire community and calling names. Very educated point of view you have. It's the uneducated that choose to use name calling rather than brains.

    Sincerely,
    Shocked

    When you all stop and think, Rodrick Dantzler was also one person who murdered how many people in one day? When you are critizing ng the police department for making the decisions that they did here and being over cautious, think about that. Funny that everyone seems to have forgotten the damage that one person can do to a community.

    Wyoming is a great city!! And for truth to say it is not mean's "it" has not been back to our great city in a while. And as far as downing the school district let me remind you we have kids coming over from GRPS to go to our school's starting in elementary. Speak no harm until you have FACTS!!!!!

  • the truth
