Las Vegas, NV — Alleged sledgehammer attacker Damien Robins was in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
Nine witnesses took the stand, giving accounts of their dangerous encounters with the 32-year-old, who police say was high on meth when he went on a rampage spanning from Boulder City the Henderson.
The incident occurred in late-October.
Victim Nicole Thompson told the judge, “I was saying, ‘Please don’t do this. I do not want to die. I want to go home to my infant.'”
Thompson mentioned Robins smashed her car, before swinging at her hands and face, breaking many bones. She’s created a tremendous recovery, but it is not over.
“I still can not open my mouth all the way and then I nonetheless can not bend my finger all the way. Next week I have to get fat injected into my face and I have to do that 3 instances,” she added.
Robins’ case will now go to trial. He faces 18 charges like attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and battery.
