DETROIT — Detroit police have arrested two teenagers in connection with the brutal beating of a motorist that has sparked outrage across the nation.
The teens, ages 16 and 17, were arrested without incident early Saturday morning in the area of the beating on Detroit’s eastside, according to Detroit Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Woody.
Woody said the teens, who are from Detroit, were part of the group that beat Steve Utash, 54, on Wednesday, after his pickup hit 10-year-old David Harris, and he stopped to check on the boy. Woody declined to discuss a motive for the attack.
Police have said the boy was struck after he stepped into the path of the pickup, and that Utash, who as of Saturday afternoon was in a medically induced coma at St. John Hospital and Medical Center with multiple head injuries, was not at fault.
