Fifth suspect charged in mob beating of Clinton Township driver, Steve Utash

DETROIT (AP) — - Prosecutors Friday charged 19-year-old Latrez Cummings with assault with intent to murder and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, after he was arrested in connection to the beating of Steve Utash.

The judge set a $500,000 bond for Cummings due to the nature of the charges.

Cummings is the fifth person charged in the April 2 attack on 54-year-old Utash. A 16-year-old is charged as a juvenile with assault and ethnic intimidation.

At least six people punched and kicked Utash when he stopped to help 10-year-old David Harris. Harris was struck after stepping into the path of Utash's truck.

Utash remains hospitalized with severe head injuries. The boy suffered a leg and other injuries.
