A Detroit mother says she was robbed while pushing her young daughter in a stroller, sexually assaulted behind a vacant house and shot in the back when she fled.
The woman testified Thursday in the preliminary exam of 18-year-old Job Hughley.
Hughley is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct and assault with intent to murder in the April 12 daylight attack.
The 37-year-old woman testified that she was accosted on a northwest Detroit street and gave her attacker two $100 bills before being forced at gunpoint to push the stroller several blocks before the rape attempt.
But when Hughley told her he wasn’t finished, “My stomach dropped. I was in fear,” the woman said.
“I got towards the corner and that’s when I felt the sting in my back and I dropped,” she said.
The baby was not injured but the woman spent two weeks in the hospital.
“I don’t have the bottom part of my lung on the right side,” the woman said.
After several outbursts during the test, the victim’s mother was held in contempt of court and removed.
Hughley also will stand trial in two separate rapes.
One woman said she was raped in an alley. The other said she was raped near a school.
