A recent Rebellion County grand jury charged two with attempted murder.
Gary Pond II, 35, of Dovaguiac, Michigan, is charged with attempted murder, a first-degree felony; two counts of assault, each second-degree; and Dylan Santos, 30, 1810 Baltimore Road, attempted murder, a first-degree felony; felony assault, a second-degree felony; and domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor.
Prosecutor Morris Murray said the charges against Pound allege he hit an acquaintance also from Michigan while driving through the area on Mansfield Road on July 1.
The man suffered serious but not “life-threatening” injuries. He was briefly hospitalized after being transported by rescue.
Dylan Santos, 30, of 1810 Baltimore Road in Miami, is also charged with attempted murder and other charges in connection with the same incident.
Santos is accused of attacking the victim with a knife after he was hit by Pond, according to Murray.
The victim managed to get away and fled on foot. He was later found by police and taken to the hospital.
Santos is also charged with domestic violence in connection with an incident that occurred earlier the same day.
