On Sunday, January 10, 2015, Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy charged Darian Winfield, 19, of Detroit, in connection with a sexual assault of a Detroit woman. On December 30, 2015, it is alleged that Winfield broke into a house in the 5800 block of Radnor and stabbed a 39-year-old Detroit woman with a knife in the chest with the intent of sexually assaulting her. The defendant fled from the house on foot. The woman called for help and was conveyed to a local hospital for medical treatment.
Winfield has been charged with Home Invasion First Degree, Assault with Intent to Murder and Assault with Intent to Commit Criminal Sexual Conduct. Winfield was arraigned on Sunday and his next date in court for the probable cause conference is on January 19, 2016 and the preliminary examination is on January 26, 2016, both before Judge Ronald Giles at 8:30 a.m.
Winfield is a person of interest in connection with a 17-year-old victim that died today from injuries sustained during an assault that occurred on January 7, 2016 in Detroit. A warrant request has not been presented for the homicide case today.
Today a warrant request was presented for Winfield in connection with the December 15, 2015 non-fatal knife attack of a woman that occurred in Grosse Pointe Park. The warrant has been presented on this case, but charges are not expected this week. The defendant remains in jail on a one million dollar cash bond.
