Police arrested a drunken Sandusky man Tuesday after he punched out a window at a Hancock Street home and busted down the door to get at his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend, a police report said.

Bryson King, 20, was charged with aggravated burglary, domestic violence, assault, obstructing official business, underage consumption and criminal damaging.

Officers showed up in the 900 block of Hancock St. at about 9:30 p.m. after a hysterical woman told dispatchers Bryson had busted out the window to get inside, the report said.

When officers arrived the residents told them Bryson fled.

After a brief search, officers found Bryson hiding in a shed behind the house. They yanked the door open and saw him on the floor with his hands covering his face, the report said.

Officers approached him at gunpoint and ordered him to put his hands up, which he did, the report said.

The 17-year-old ex-girlfriend later told police she recently broke up with Bryson but he was still living with her mother because he had nowhere to stay.

The girl said Bryson got angry Tuesday night when she told him she was sleeping at a friend’s house. When she tried to get away from him, he grabbed her, the report said.

The girl managed to break free and run into her friend’s home, where she locked the doors. Bryson then punched out the window and squirmed through to unlock the door, the report said.

Once inside, he went to a room where the girl, her friend and her friend’s children were huddled. He grabbed the girl and threw her onto a bed, but took off when he learned police were on the way.

At 10:30 p.m. Wednesday he was being held in the Erie County jail on $13,610 bond. If he posts bond he’ll be required to wear an electronic ankle monitor.
