Detroit's suspected serial rapist bound over for trial after more testimony

After last week's painful testimony from two sisters who claim they were victims of rape at the hands of Michael Sykes, the suspected serial rapist is back in court as other other victims tell their story.

Last week's testimony came from two sisters who claimed they were forced into an alley at gunpoint in 2008 and raped. 

On Wednesday, three friends took the stand to tell their story about an attack that happened in March of this year.

The three friends said they were carjacked at a gas station on Fenkle and Schafer on Detroit's west side, 21-year-old Michael Sykes. 

A witness says Sykes drove around Detroit and looked for abounded house. When he found the homes, Sykes allegedly forced them perform oral sex on him and then on each other. 

Judge Michael Wagner bound Michael Sykes over for trial on all counts.
