Tony Brown, 30, and Takoma Johnson, 33, both of Sandusky, weren’t immediately charged, but they were allegedly responsible for the attack. Erie County chief deputy Jared Oliver said felonious assault charges would be sought this week during an Erie County grand jury session.

Jail guards rushed to the jail’s “G-pod” at about 7:30 a.m. Sunday for an inmate brawl.

“On arrival, corrections officers found Tommy Reogas lying on the floor bleeding from the head,” an Erie County deputy’s report states.
