Suspect to face charges in assault of Inkster woman

Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Brandon Mitchell Kolc, 29, of Rockwood, in connection with the assault of a 27-year-old Inkster woman. 

Michigan State Police Troopers were dispatched at about 9:15 a.m. Nov. 28 to a rest area off of westbound I-94 in Van Buren Township for a reported assault. When officers arrived at the scene, they observed the Inkster woman suffering from multiple wounds to her face and neck. Medics arrived on the scene and transported the victim to a local hospital for treatment, according to the prosecutor's office. 

Prosecutors allege a verbal altercation between t

he defendant and victim escalated, and the defendant punched and strangled the victim, before fleeing the scene. Investigation by the Michigan State Police led to the arrest of the defendant later the same day, according to police reports.

Kolc has been charged with aggravated domestic violence and was arraigned last week in 34th District Court and given a $100,000 cash bond with a GPS tether. His pretrial was set for yesterday, Dec. 13, before Judge Brian Oakley.
