A Detroit man is now behind bars after spending time in the hospital for what some are calling "Street Justice".
Kahari Wright was beaten by several people on the night of January 3rd when a mob of people drug him out into the streets, nearly naked, and beat him. Neighbors say that the mob of angry people were the family members of a teenage girl who Wright had been accused of sexually assaulting.
One man, Marc D' Andre, with 7 Mile Radio News, said that it looked as if Wright's lip had been stomped off. "His mouth appeared to be very bloody, and it was just like he was in an MMA fight."
One witness recounted the ordeal saying "After chasing him down the street in nothing but underwear, they stomped his top lip off & left him on the sidewalk crouching on his knees with his Left eye hanging out of his head!"
A witness recorded the aftermath, showing a battered and bloody Wright, being taken into custody and on an ambulance gurney.
The investigators have not said how Wright knows the victim but, several sources are saying that he is also a relative of the teen. Her identity has been protected, by law, as customary for victims of sexual assault.
Wright, 37, was kept in the hospital for treatment but has been release and is now charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct of a minor and home invasion.
He is also facing charges stemming from a non-fatal shooting.
Police are also investigating the beating.
Previous reports have suggested that there was an arrest warrant was issued for Wright in November. In October, Wright was charged with home invasion, assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, and weapons charges.
Prosecutors said the fact that Wright was not behind bars falls on Detroit police as Wayne County signed the arrest warrant.
Wright was arraigned Saturday on three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to 36th District Court records.
Bond was set at $250,000. Wright stood mute and a not-guilty plea was entered, the records show.
He was ordered to wear a tether, remain under house arrest and have no contact with children.
A probable cause conference is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Jan. 17, followed by another hearing a week later.
