Knife-Wielding Attacker Faces Multiple Charges Following An Assault on a Sedalia Woman

In a follow up on a story KSIS brought you last week, at 5:14  a.m. on Thursday, September 13, a female victim called the Sedalia Police Department to report that a man had broken into her house and assaulted her with a knife. The police report states the victim fought with the suspect until he fled the residence and the victim received serious injuries during the home invasion. The suspect, 28-year-old Matthew Lee Cloyd of Sweet Springs, was caught as police officers, and detectives from the Sedalia Police Investigative Unit were canvasing the neighborhood.

According to a press release from Police Commander David Woolery, Cloyd fled out the back door while making contact with a resident at Griffith Trailer Park at 900 Griffith’s Avenue and was apprehended by investigators. Evidence linking him to the crime was located on his person and in the residence he fled from.

At the time of the press release, Cloyd was being held in the Pettis County jail pending formal charges of 1st degree burglary, 1st degree assault, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon and theft.
