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.
