Suspect charged after mentally disabled man beaten in unprovoked attack in Redford Twp.

(WJBK) -

Redford police say they have arrested and charged a suspect after the attack of a mentally disabled man inside a gas station in Redford Twp. The attack happened earlier this month and was caught on surveillance camera.

The video footage at the gas station on Telegraph Road shows Jermaine Findley, 25, walk in and visit with the clerk. Jermaine steps out of the way so the clerk can help a customer who is paying for gas. You can see Jermaine and the customer never appear to speak.

The customer puts his money back in the wallet, takes one step toward the door, pivots and punches Jermaine who falls to the ground. Jermaine was then kicked and stomped on while he was lying on the floor.

Police say they have since received a tip that named the suspect in the surveillance video as Mark Marlow. Marlow was arraigned in Redford District Court Monday. He was charged with assault and battery and aggravated assault, both misdemeanors. Marlow has been released on bond.

Police say Marlow has a criminal record, including serving time in prison for assault with a dangerous weapon, felony firearms and carrying a concealed weapon.
