2 men sentenced in Detroit attack on motorist

DETROIT – One man has been sentenced to prison and a second must serve probation for a mob attack on a Detroit-area motorist.

Wonzey Saffold and Bruce Wimbush pleaded guilty to assault in exchange for having attempted murder charges dropped.

Saffold was sentenced Monday in Wayne County Court to serve six years and four months to 10 years in prison. Wimbush was sentenced to three years' probation.

They were among five people who pleaded guilty in the attack.

Steve Utash, a tree trimmer from Macomb County, was severely beaten after he got out of his pickup to check on a 10-year-old boy who had darted in front of him in Detroit.

Utash spent several days in a coma after the April 2 attack.

Two more defendants will be sentenced Thursday.
