MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) – Both suspects in the assault and robbery of a Domino’s pizza delivery driver in Muskegon are headed to trial.

Wednesday, 54-year-old driver Roy Ferguson testified in court during the preliminary hearing for Micah Quinn, 17, saying Quinn, and 19-year-old Taylin Glenn — who previously waived his preliminary hearing – terrorized him, knocked out his front teeth and left him bloody and nearly naked in the incident.

Ferguson testified that it all happened during his shift on March 19. He told the judge he knocked on a door, felt a gun pressed into his back and was told not to knock on the door again.

He said moments later, he was stuffed into the trunk of a vehicle and the alleged robbers drove off. After stopping, Ferguson said, Quinn forced him to strip down to his underwear.

“They had me get out of the trunk and take my clothes off,” Ferguson testified.

He said he was forced back in the trunk.

The suspects then drove around for about 30 minutes to an hour, Ferguson said, before stopping and again forcing him to get out of the trunk. That’s when, Ferguson said,  he thought Quinn and Glenn were going to kill him.

“They told me to get down and pray,” Ferguson testified, saying Glenn approached him with a gun drawn. “One of them pulled a gun and pulled the trigger on the gun and it clicked. It just clicked. And he laughed and said, ‘Ha ha, got you.'”

Ferguson said the suspects then told him to get back in the trunk, and took off again. He told the judge that when the suspects stopped, they told him to count and get out of the trunk, which is when he saw they had left him there alone.

Quinn’s attorney tried to poke holes in Ferguson’s story, attempting to establish that he could not have gotten a good look at his client in the dark. But the driver said his memory of the evening is solid.

In all, police say, Quinn and Glenn got away with $20 in cash.

During the preliminary hearing, a detective testified that Quinn confessed to the crime during questioning.

“He made many statements, but the crux of it is that he and his co-defendant committed the robbery,” Detective Peter Boterenbrood said.

Quinn is also going to trial in a case involving another robbery that happened during a drug deal, just days before abduction of the pizza delivery driver.
