Saginaw Township beating victim testifies about attack, injuries

SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) - (07/12/18) - A Saginaw County assistant prosecutor described it as a "savage attack". A 19-year-old man is accused of punching and kicking one man, and stabbing a second.

Thursday three young men testified about what unfolded outside of a Saginaw Township home in the 1800 block of Avalon Avenue in the early morning hours of June 16.

Dylan Teneyuque-Pfau, 19, is charged with attacking Jarrod Turk and Anthony Rendon.

Twenty-year-old Jarrod Turk was the first man to testify in Saginaw County District Court before Judge Terry Clark.

"He said everyone was going back to his house and I was welcome to come," Turk said.

Turk testified he had been at one party, but it had been broken up.

Turk and several others then moved on to Jacob Ousley's home on Avalon Avenue, but the party didn't last long.

"My big picture window got shattered," Ousley said.

As Ousley tried to figure out who broke his parent's window, he confronted several people. The last person he confronted was Turk.

Both testified they were standing face to face when the attack happened.

"I got hit in the side of the face, I couldn't see where it came from," Turk said, adding he was hit on the right side of his face. "By the time I turned around to see who hit me I got hit again."

Turk said he was knocked to the ground. "I was blacked out for however long, but when I woke back up I was getting kicked in the face."

In court Ousley testified it was Teneyuque-Pfau who punched and kicked Turk.

One of Turk's friends was able to get him to a car and leave.

A short time later a group of Turk's friends, including Anthony Rendon, returned to Ousley's Avalon Avenue home.

"Came at me two times at first," Rendon said, referring to Teneyuque-Pfau.

Rendon said Teneyuque-Pfau had a roughly 12-inch knife, but the first attempt didn't result in any injuries.

Rendon said Teneyuque-Pfau tried again. "And that's when he came a second time and struck me."

But Teneyuque-Pfau's attorney asked if there was more to the story, as there were other people with Rendon when he returned.

Ousley testified someone with Rendon had guns, including a pistol and rifle.

Also in court Turk shared more about his injuries.

Turk testified a friend took him to the friend's mother's house, but he was taken home to Bay City a few hours later.

Then after several more hours, Turk drove himself to a hospital in Saginaw Township, before being taken via ambulance to Hurley Medical Center in Flint.

He said he was hospitalized for six days, spending the first two days in a medically induced coma.

"I got eight screws underneath my eyes because my skull was shattered from ear to ear across my nose. And my top and bottom jaw were completely broken so my mouth is wired shut," Turk said.

After hearing testimony from Turk, Rendon and Ousley, Judge Clark ruled there was enough evidence to move Teneyuque-Pfau's case to Circuit Court for a possible trial.

Teneyuque-Pfau remains free on bond as he awaits his next court appearance.

Turk said he's facing another surgery in a little more than a week.
