A Sandusky teen ran from police after her father took her to the Erie County Detention Home to be placed on house arrest Tuesday afternoon, a Sandusky police report said.

The 16-year-old King Street girl was charged with obstruction and resisting arrest. It was about 3 p.m. when the girl’s father took her to the detention home and she began screaming at him, according to the police report.

The girl then allegedly grappled with her father before pulling away and escaping through the facility’s doors.

Officers spotted the girl near Broadway and Barker streets, but she shouted, “(Expletive) you, you never do anything for me,” and continued running.

The girl made it to her King Street home, where she locked herself in the bathroom, the report said.

With her father’s blessing, an officer forced his way inside and walked her to his cruiser as she flailed her limbs and thrashed around, the report said. 

She was then booked into the detention home.
