TAYLOR — Two brothers accused in the assault of a 28-year-old Lincoln Park man at a local gas station were released on bond following their arraignment in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Circuit Court Judge Michael Callahan issued strict bond conditions for Anthony Clark, 23, and DeAngelo Clark, 22, when the two were arraigned on information at the higher court Nov. 3.

According to Circuit Court records, Anthony Clark was issued a bond of 10 percent of $75,000 and will wear a tether pending future court dates. DeAngelo Clark was issued a bond of 10 percent of $50,000 and will also wear a tether.

The Clark brothers were charged with three felony counts each including assault with intent to commit murder, a felony punishable by life in prison.

According to prosecutors and police reports, the victim confronted the two men on Sept. 13 at the BP gas station at 9225 S. Telegraph, and accused them of dealing drugs at the station and in the neighborhood. Responding police officers found the victim unconscious and bleeding from the head.

Court proceedings, including preliminary examinations of the evidence against them in Taylor’s 23rd District Court, had been rescheduled throughout October to allow the victim to recover. The man remained hospitalized for weeks after the assault, and reportedly suffers hearing and vision loss.

A final conference before Callahan is scheduled for December.
