Innocent bystander assaulted
DETROIT – Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged twin brothers Dwight Samuels and Duane Samuels, both 61 of Detroit in connection with an assault that happened at Nicky D's Coney Island.

They are expected to be arraigned in 34th District Court after 11 a.m. Saturday, the prosecutor's office said.
