Teen accused of assaulting ex

A Sandusky teen is facing hefty charges after he allegedly forced his way into an ex-girlfriend’s home and assaulted her. 


The 16-year-old East Market Street boy was charged with assault, disrupting public service and aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony.

A 16-year-old Neil Street girl broke up with the boy last week, prompting him to board her school bus on Thursday and begin harassing her, according to a Sandusky police report. She tried to ignore the boy, but he continued pulling her earbuds out and giving her a hard time.

The girl hurried off the bus when she arrived at her stop, but the boy followed in pursuit. She tried to slip inside her home and lock the door, but the boy pushed past her and made entry, the report said.

Inside, the teen began tossing items around and yelling at the girl. He then allegedly picked her up and slammed her down. When she reached for her phone to call police, the boy took it from her, then went in her room and smacked everything off her dresser, the report said.

At one point, he busted a flat-screen TV and also lobbed a candle at the girl before smacking her across the face, the report said.

The girl tried to run outside, but the boy yanked her back inside, calling her a “broke, poor, bum (expletive)” before he left the house, the report said.

On Sunday, the boy’s mother brought him to the police station to be served his charges. He was arrested and taken to the Erie County Detention Home.
