Sandusky police are investigating a sexual assault which allegedly occurred Thursday at an Adams Street home.

A man contacted police minutes before midnight Thursday to report the possible assault of his friend, a 23-year-old Dayton-area man, according to Sandusky police detective Ken Nixon. The man also said his friend may have been drugged, Nixon said.

The alleged victim later spoke with police. He said he’d met a Sandusky man in his fifties on an online dating site and had visited him regularly in the few weeks he’d been in town, Nixon said.

On Thursday night, the man allegedly tried to rape the 23-year-old at an Adams Street home, but the victim managed to avoid the assault.

Detectives were scheduled to meet with the victim on Tuesday, but he did not show up to the appointment, Nixon said.
