Police said Bowes and his alleged accomplice — 24-year-old Shawn Edward Bilkovsky of Detroit — befriended the victim in Detroit and later beat him bloody and unconscious at Donald J. Yacks Elementary School, on Union Lake Road in Mount Clemens.
The victim, a 54-year-old Canton man, told investigators he was in the city that morning with another man when they befriended a couple of guys who were trying to get to an address in Harrison Township.
The four men drove to various locations until the man’s friend asked to be dropped off, according to police, leaving the victim alone with the two suspects. The victim told police that he drove the men to Yacks Elementary, where the three got out of the vehicle and walked to the dugout on one of the baseball fields.
Once there, the victim said he was kicked and beaten so severely that he was knocked out before the suspects fled the scene in his car — a 2014 Kia.READ MORE: 3 Dead, 9 Hurt In Separate Weekend Shootings In Detroit
The victim was later taken to a local hospital for treatment of facial injuries, numerous cuts and abrasions.
The man was able to give investigators a partial name and a description of one of the suspects who assaulted him. Detectives did a search using an internal database, and were able to identify one of them as Bilkovsky —who was located in Holly, driving the victim’s car.
He was arrested, charged and jailed on a $25,000 bond. The car was impounded.
A short time later, sheriff’s officials say, Bowes was taken into custody.
He remains jailed Thursday charged with one count of assault with intent to do bodily harm, less than murder; unarmed robbery and unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle — all felonies.MORE NEWS: Olivia Newton-John, Beloved Singer, Songwriter And Actress, Dies At 73
