A Detroit man who allegedly bit his ex-girlfriend in the head during an assault last month at her Ferndale home now faces a charge of assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct in addition to other charges.

Duoquan Blunt, 43, appeared in Ferndale 43rd District Court Monday, where the new charge was added, the Daily Tribune reports. Blunt’s former girlfriend testified that he attempted to pull down her pants during the alleged attack and also reportedly choked her and held a knife-cutter blade to her throat.

The attack occurred late the night of Dec. 17 and the suspect, who had a no-contact order against him, showed up at his former girlfriend’s home. Blunt was charged with felony assault, which carries a four-year sentence, and was on probation for a former domestic assault conviction at the time. He was also charged with second offense domestic violence.

The sexual assault charge is a five-year felony.

Five years jail time if convicted?! And for a repeat offender no less! This man should face incarceration of at least 20 years. Can a person who clearly doesn't know right from wrong even be rehabilitated? In my opinion anyone who would name their child Duoquan sets them up for hard life straight out of the womb. Sad times we live in.
