Prayer Service Planned After Detroit Mob Attack

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Clergy from Detroit and its suburbs are expected to host "A Night of Healing" and prayer following the brutal mob beating of a man after he struck a boy who stepped from a curb in front of his pickup truck.

The event is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Thursday at Historic Little Rock Baptist Church in Detroit. A news release says family of 54-year-old Steve Utash will attend the program. Mayor Mike Duggan also is expected to attend.

Utash suffered severe head injuries when a mob of at least six people beat and kicked him April 2 when he stopped to help 10-year-old David Harris on Detroit's east side. Utash remains hospitalized. Harris was treated for a leg and other injuries.

Five people, including two teens have been arrested.
