Tony Brown, 30, and Takoma Johnson, 33, both of Sandusky, weren't immediately charged although Erie County chief deputy Jared Oliver said the case would go before an Erie County Grand Jury this week.

Meanwhile Tommy Reogas, 34, was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center where staff stitched up a gash on the right side of his face. Deputies never found a weapon but they suspect one of the men used a the metal part of a pencil eraser to slice Reogas' face.

Pencils are allowed in the jail, Oliver said.

All three men were being held at the Erie County jail late Monday — Johnson on $125,240 bond, Brown on $39,334 bond and Reogas on $546,700 bond.
