Man indicted on attempted rape charge

An Erie County jury has indicted a Sandusky man accused of sexually assaulting a friend inside her Pearl Street home.


Timothy McClinton, 31, of the 1300 block of Camp St., was charged with attempted rape and attempted burglary. McClinton and the alleged victim went to her home after a night of drinking on Aug. 11. Thinking McClinton had left, the woman’s teenage son went to her room to check on her, only to find McClinton in the act of assaulting her, Sandusky police Sgt. Dana Newell said.

A family member of the victim later confronted McClinton, prompting him to return to the Pearl Street home, where he allegedly fired off a few rounds from a gun, police said. The grand jury opted to drop a rape charge McClinton had been facing.

An indictment is a formal charge and does not denote guilt or innocence.
