DETROIT — A 49-year-old man has been charged in the beating of a woman who was found near a Detroit intersection.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Alex Moore was arraigned Wednesday in 36th District Court on torture and assault with intent to murder charges.

The victim was found about 3 a.m. Saturday on the city’s west side and taken to a hospital.

Moore was ordered jailed on a $200,000 bond. A probable cause conference is scheduled for Sept. 21. A preliminary examination will be held Sept. 27.

No attorney was listed Wednesday in court records for Moore.
