On December 8, 2021, at approximately 11:30 a.m., Detroit police officers were dispatched to the area of Grand River Avenue and Trinity Street for DDOT trouble. Upon their arrival, officers made contact with the victim, who pointed out the defendant. Defendant Hobson was arrested at the scene. Medics arrived on scene and transported the victim to a local hospital for treatment.
It is alleged that a verbal altercation between the victim and the defendant escalated and Defendant Hobson stabbed the victim multiple times, non-fatally injuring him.
"We are in times today where people who are stepping up to do already difficult jobs cannot even do so without putting their lives in danger," said Prosecutor Worthy.

The alleged actions of this defendant drive the point home even more. "
