Man remains in hospital after stabbing

Sandusky Register Staff • Nov 26, 2013 at 3:52 PM

Jason Dendy, 32, was listed in critical condition Monday at Cleveland MetroHeath Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The two men accused of attacking him — Dustin Ramsey, 31, of Sandusky, and Joseph Moffitt, 31, of Monroeville — remain in the Erie County jail on charges of complicity to felonious assault.

Ramsey’s bond is about $24,000, while Moffitt’s is about $22,000.

Detectives said they’re still trying to determine which man actually stabbed Dendy.

The incident happened at about 1:30 a.m. at Columbus Avenue and Water Street. Dendy suffered four wounds, including a slash on his left side, from his armpit to his rib cage, police said. He was taken by ambulance to Firelands Regional Medical Center, then flown by medical helicopter to the Cleveland hospital.

Officers arrested Ramsey and Moffitt on the spot when bystanders pointed them out.

In addition to collecting Dendy’s bloodied shirts from the street as evidence, police also found two pocket knives discarded in the area, both more than 3 inches long, Sandusky police Detective Dana Newell said.

Newell would not say if the knives had blood on them, although both were sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for forensic testing.

Newell said he plans to interview both suspects this week.
