GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A 17-year-old has been charged Friday as an adult in connection with a recent video showing an assault near Rosa Parks Circle.
According to the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office, Gary Allen Woods-Caston is facing a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder in connection with the July 28 incident. Grand Rapids Police announced Thursday that five arrests were made after the video was released.
