Comments Off on Ferndale police: Bryan Domagalski, 43, of Farmington Hills, high on crystal Methamphetamine charged with felony assault in sex beating

A Ferndale man was beaten unconscious and found in a pool of blood after police say his older boyfriend got high on crystal meth and badly beat him for refusing sex.

“According to the victim, he and the suspect started to engage in sexual activity,” said Ferndale Police Lt. William Wilson. “The victim said no and the suspect got angry and then attacked the victim.”

Suspect Bryan Domagalski, 43, of Farmington Hills was arraigned at Beaumont Hospital Thursday night with assault with intent to cause great bodily harm less than murder, and possession of methamphetamine. Ferndale 43rd District Magistrate J. Patrick Brennan set a $50,000 cash bond for the suspect.

Police said they were called to the house where the Ferndale man rents a room by the homeowner about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The woman who owns the house in the 700 block of Allen told police and she and another woman who lives there became concerned after hearing loud banging and swearing.

One of the women yelled out and asked if everything was OK and someone in the upstairs rented room answered “yes,” police said.

But there was so much continuing noise and violent banging that the homeowner became concerned and went up the stairs.

“She was concerned someone was being hurt,” Wilson said. “When she got upstairs she found the victim lying naked in a pool of blood on the floor and severely injured and unconscious. He was bleeding from the face and head and it looked as though his face was smashed into the floor multiple times.”

The suspect was standing in the room, naked from the waist down, and the homeowner called police, Wilson said.

Police arrived and said it appeared the suspect was high on some type of drug and officers found crystal meth.

“Both the victim and the suspect were transported to the hospital,” Wilson said. “The suspect was overdosing on drugs. He was incoherent and sweating profusely.”

Both men were still in the hospital as of Thursday night, but police said neither of them face life-threatening injuries.

The suspect has been released to the custody of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department and will be transferred to the county jail once he is released from the hospital.

Domagalski is also charged with an alternate count of aggravated assault.

The charges of assault with intent to cause great bodily harm and possessing methamphetamine are each punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

The suspect is scheduled for a pre-exam conference hearing in Ferndale District Court at 1 p.m. Feb. 4.
