GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – A 19-year-old woman broke down in tears as she testified Wednesday that four suspects took turns sexually assaulting her during a home invasion at a West Side home.
She testified for nearly a half-hour in a hearing for the suspects — about as long as she said the attack lasted.
“I’m saying no and crying,” the woman testified, “and then one of ’em cocks a gun to my head and puts the blanket over my face.”
Four suspects — James Hodges, 19, Dorian Jones and Rederick Melton, both 20, and Brandon Towns, 25 — are each charged with three counts of sexual assault, along with robbery charges and home invasion. They were in court on Wednesday to determine whether they will face trial, and all were bound over on all the charges.
