STEUBENVILLE, OH (WOIO) –
The strange beard-cutting crime in Holmes County heads to a grand jury. All five men appeared in a Holmes County Municipal Court.
The men are accused of breaking into homes of Amish families and cutting the victims’ beards and hair.
The men – who are all part of the “Bergholz Clan – are accused of going to the home of a Carroll County man, dragging him outside by his beard and cutting it off.
A similar incident happened in Holmes County, when the group of Amish bullies burst into a house, cut the hair off the women as well as the hair and beards of the men.
The men waived their right to a preliminary hearing. No plea was entered. Bond has not been set.
