YPSILANTI TWP. (WWJ) – An Ypsilanti Township man has been convicted in a sexual assault that included him trying to brand his initials on his girlfriend with a hot coat hanger.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s officials say 24-year-old Dajuan Roberts assaulted the woman at a home on Emerick Street last month.

The woman told authorities that she and Roberts were arguing about sex when he became enraged. She said he struck her, choked her and threatened to kill her, holding her at knifepoint while he forced himself on her.

Sheriff’s officials say Roberts cut the victim’s chest with the knife and heated a wire hanger so he could “brand” her buttocks.

Someone else in the home eventually dialed 911 and Roberts was arrested.

Roberts was found guilty Thursday on multiple charges, including assault with intent to do great bodily harm and domestic violence. He was acquitted on an attempted murder charge.

A sentencing date was not disclosed.
