A Michigan prosecutor has charged three young men in the assault and carjacking of popular Detroit pastor and gospel singing icon Marvin Winans.

 

The office of Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says 20-year-old Detroit residents Phillip Givens and Christopher Moorehead and 18-year-old Brian K. Young of Macomb County’s Clinton Township are charged with carjacking, unarmed robbery and conspiracy.

 

The charges carry up to life in prison.

 

The prosecutor’s office says the three are expected to be arraigned Sunday.

 

Winans was attacked Wednesday afternoon while pumping gas at a Detroit gas station.

 

The 54-year-old sustained bruises and scrapes. His wallet, Rolex watch and 2012 Infiniti sport utility vehicle were taken. The SUV was recovered.
