Oakland Township — Authorities arrested four people in the stabbing of a homeowner with a screwdriver Tuesday.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said its Fugitive Apprehension Team arrested the group, initially described as a white male and black male, a white female and a black female, all in their early 20s, on Tuesday night. Other details were expected to be released Wednesday.

Officials said the attack occurred about 4:30 a.m. outside a home in the 100 block of Lyndon Circle, near West Romeo and Kline roads.

According to police, the 58-year-old homeowner was leaving for work when he saw four people inside his vehicle. A fight started when the victim confronted the suspects.

The victim was stabbed 12 times in the stomach and back with a screwdriver.

“We don’t know if the screwdriver was already in the the vehicle or if the suspects brought it with them,” said Sgt. Randall Prasky.

The suspects escaped in a gray Pontiac Grand Am or Grand Prix.

The victim was taken by the Oakland Township Fire Department to McLaren Hospital with non-life threatening wounds.
