(Scroll down for video) A white man was severely beaten after he accidentally ran over a block boy, police in Michigan said.
The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office announced that it has charged a 17-year-old boy in connection with the mob beating of 54-year-old Steven Utash near a gas station in Detroit on Wednesday.
Utash, a father of three children, is still clinging to life and is said to be in extremely critical condition. Bruce Edward Wimbush Jr., 17, of Detroit, was charged with assault with intent to murder and with assault with intent to do great bodily harm.
Another minor who has been arrested in connection with the offense, has not been charged, but is incarcerated in the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Center. Last week, Utash was driving his vehicle when he hit a 10-year-old black kid, who ran into the street.
Utash stopped and got out of his vehicle. When he tried to check the condition of the child, Wimbush along with several other children, began beating him.
The child was taken to a local hospital and was treated for a leg injury. Police said that so far, four people were arrested.
