Sandusky man charged after domestic dispute turns violent

Terrance Pace, 29, was charged with domestic violence, disrupting public services, assault and unlawful restraint. 

It all started at about 3:30 a.m. when Rebecca Bledsoe, 25, let her dogs out. When she opened the door Pace was standing on the porch. 

Since he had no other place to stay, she agreed to let him spend the night, a report said. 

But when he asked to sleep in Bledsoe’s bed and she refused things got ugly. 

“He began to throw a ‘fit like a child’ and began calling her names,” a report said. “Bledsoe stated she asked Pace to leave with him refusing.” 

When she told Pace she was calling the police he wrestled the cellphone from her hands, took her shoes and blocked the door. Later, she grabbed up an end table and smashed him over the head with it three times, according to a police report. 

When Bledsoe reached for a lamp a struggle broke out and their daughter woke up. They agreed to solve the issue in the morning. 

At about 10:45 a.m. she convinced Pace to give up the cellphone and called police. 

Pace told police he’d been staying with Bledsoe for weeks and that she started the whole thing. 

Police took pictures to scratches on Pace and Bledsoe then took Pace to the Erie County jail where he was being held late Monday on $19,998 bond.
