Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged two men in connection to a violent brawl in Greektown.

Stanley Faulk, 23 and Keith Harvey, 26, are charged in the assault of 23-year-old Brandon Putnam. The brawl took place on April 16 at approximately 1:00 a.m.

 

Faulk and Harvey were arraigned Wednesday on charges including: Unarmed Robbery, Assault with Intent to Murder, Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm, and Felonious Assault. Cocaine was allegedly found on Harvey at the time of his arrest. He is also being charged with Cocaine possession.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig had promised to have arrests made in the brawl caught on video outside of Greektown Casino. So far, two of the eight suspects have been arrested.

According to Craig, two of the 'most violent' suspects were arrested and they are still looking for the other six.

The two suspects in custody were the ones seen kicking the victim on the ground, and one even went into the victim's pockets to steal things.

All of the suspects, according to Craig, are from the city of Inkster. Craig said they know who the other six suspects are and urged them to turn themselves in.

"You don't get to come in Detroit and engage in that kind of behavior," he said. "We have eyes everywhere."

According to Craig, the victim is expected to recover.

Based on their investigation, they don't believe there was any gang affiliation involved, just foolishness.
