Charges Were Dismissed Against 3 Violent Thugs For THIS Absurd Reason

Detroit — Three males charged with a rape and gang attack on a woman and her boyfriend had all charges dismissed Tuesday morning when the complainants failed to appear in court.

All charges, including kidnapping, robbery and assault, were dropped without prejudice against Antoine Edward-Ikie Orr, 18, Chico Lee Bruce, 22, and Jordan Reese, 17, by 36th District Court Judge Kenneth King.

The three, along with three other men, were alleged to have attacked the 21-year-old woman and her 22-year-old boyfriend July 16 in the 10300 block of W. McNichols.

According to police, at about 10 p.m., six men robbed the victims and then forced the woman into an alleyway at gunpoint where she was sexually assaulted while her boyfriend was forced to watch.

Bruce turned himself in to police after police released his name and photo. Orr was arrested a few days later at his home in the 13500 block of Woodmont on the city’s northwest side. Reese, 17, was also arrested later that same day near Seven Mile and Joann, police said.

The three men were only charged in one attack, although less than two hours after the first July 16 rape, there was another assault with similar circumstances.

In the second attack, two men approached a 19-year-old female and 21-year-old male and at gunpoint ordered them into a nearby alley, where the woman was raped. Their clothing was taken.

A third similar incident, on July 11, also may be connected to the same group, police said.

A case that is dismissed without prejudice means it is not dismissed permanently andcan be reopened at a later date.

The men had been arraigned on 13 counts of first-degree sexual assault as well as armed robbery and kidnapping charges. They were held on $250,000 cash bonds.
