Suspect arraigned in Dearborn hostage situation

A 19-year-old Deaborn man was arraigned Friday in connection with a home invasion-hostage situation earlier this week in Dearborn.

Anthony Jamal Sharay is charged with first-degree home invasion, assault with intent to murder, great bodily harm, felonious assault and unlawful imprisonment.

Judge William Hultgren of the 19th District Court set Sharay’s bond at $500,000 cash or surety, no 10 percent. If he posts bond, he will be required to wear a GPS tether, relinquish his passport and have no contact with anyone involved in the case.

On Wednesday, Dearborn police were called to the 5000 block of Williamson on what was believed to be a report of family trouble. A resident of the home said he heard a noise and saw a man holding scissors to his 15-year-old brother’s neck.

Police talked the suspect into releasing the victim and surrendering. The suspect had blood on his hands from a self-inflicted cut.

“The officers responded quickly and utilized their training to de-escalate a life-threatening situation,” Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said in a statement. “The fact that this came to a peaceful resolution is a testimony to their professionalism and their commitment to protecting the public.”

Sharay returns to court Dec. 4 for a probable cause hearing and Dec. 11 for a preliminary exam.
