The Detroit teen accused of robbing a Seaholm High School custodian at gunpoint in the school parking lot last month will face trial on multiple felony counts
Roland Hubbard, 18, was bound over to Oakland County Circuit Court following a preliminary hearing this week, records show. Authorities arrested him shortly after the early-morning carjacking on Nov. 12, but not before he led police on a chase through multiple municipalities. He remained at the Oakland County Jail Thursday on $1 million bond.
The victim, a relatively new employee at the school, told the court he was ambushed by a hooded assailant in the vehicle he recently purchased.
“He pulled out a gun, and told me to get out and drop everything," the man said Wednesday in 48th District Court in Bloomfield Township. The man heard a gunshot, and testified that he kept the school keys in his pocket, as well as a secondary cellphone, which he used to call police.
School district officials closed Seaholm for the day while the immediate investigation was ongoing. Classes resumed the following day.
Police officers from other communities also testified to hearing more gunfire, and ne officer testified that he returned fire before being able to fully stop the squad car, according to WDIV Channel 4.
Hubbard is expected back in court later this month.
