The shocking event received multiple responses from law enforcement.
Michael McGinnis, the Police Commander for Detroit, was quoted in saying that the victim had received “traumatic injuries.”
Continuing, McGinnis said: “How do you do this to another human being? I can’t—it’s unimaginable. I did see pictures and I just… the pain she must be suffering, I can’t imagine.”
Sgt. Kayla Williams, leader of Detroit Police Department’s domestic violence unit, reported to Newsweek that the attack had been brought to the force’s attention by a “tipster”.
The unnamed tipster was worried for her own safety if she told police of Marsh’s actions, but she eventually came forward.
“I want to applaud her,” Williams said of the key witness, “I want to again let her know that she is not alone. She has the men and women of the Detroit Police Department to support her.”
