Judge denies bond for ex-Cosby basketball player accused of violent attack
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A judge has denied bond for the nearly 7-foot-tall former Cosby basketball player accused of carrying out a violent home invasion Monday afternoon, that left two teens injured.
In court Tuesday morning, Judge Thomas Murphy denied bond for Matthew Gorski, who appeared by way of video-conferencing from the Chesterfield jail.
A woman, believed to be Gorski’s mother, told the judge she was working to get a lawyer for Gorski. The father of one of the alleged teen victims was also in court.
Detectives said Gorski stormed into a Hampton Park house Monday afternoon, as two teens made their way in after getting off a school bus.
Multiple sources have confirmed to CBS 6, Gorski violently attacked the teens by hitting them with the handle of a knife. The incident left one victim with stitches.
Outside court, the teen victim’s father told CBS 6 Reporter Jerrita Patterson, “physically they (the victims) were healing, but emotionally it was a different story.”
With the help of neighbors, police were able to get a good description of the suspects car, which was pulled over, leading to Gorski’s arrest.
Gorski is facing several charges:
- 1 count of Attempted Capital Murder
- 4 counts of abduction
- 2 counts of malicious wounding
- 1 count of strangulation
- 2 counts of robbery
- 2 counts of attempted robbery
- 1 count of burglary
- 1 count of driving under the influence
Gorski is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 22.
