From The Intelligencer:
The Amish men burst into a home and cut the hair off men and women inside and cut the beards off the men, said Holmes County Sheriff Timothy Zimmerly. He said the victims included a 13-year-old girl and a 74-year-old man.
That same day in Carroll County, a group of men knocked on a door of a man’s home, pulled him out by his beard and tried to cut off his beard. The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department said the men who pulled the man from his home referred to themselves as being part of the “Bergholz Clan.”
Sam Mullet said in an interview that the beard cutting was a religious statement made in response to how other Amish communities in the region are treating his Bergholz congregation.
