MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) – A Metro Detroit man faces life in prison after he was charged Thursday in connection with stabbing an acquaintance while trying to rob her.

Jovaughn Harrington, 37, of Mount Clemens, was charged with assault with intent to murder and armed robbery. He is charged as a habitual fourth offender.

On Tuesday, February 27, Harrington ran into an acquaintance at a gas station and asked her to meet him later that day.

When they met, Harrington attempted to rob the woman, and when she resisted, he stabbed her several times.

The woman is in stable condition, according to a statement from the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

Harrington was given a $150,000 cash bond, no 10%.

If released, he will be ordered to wear a steel shackle chain, have no contact with the victim and not possess any weapons or ammunition.

“We are charged with seeking justice for those who have been victims of violent crimes,” said Macomb County Prosecutor Peter J. Lucido. “We will tirelessly pursue accountability to ensure that victims receive the justice they deserve and that our communities remain safe from such senseless acts of violence.”
