Man assaults woman, threatens kids

A Sandusky man was arrested on numerous charges Tuesday after he stormed into an acquaintance’s home, assaulted her, then threatened to hurt her children, police said.

Terrance Brown, 30, of the 200 block of Fulton St., was charged with burglary, theft, assault, aggravated menacing and two counts each of child endangering and menacing.

A drunken Brown barged into a woman’s home on Remington Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. and promptly stole a house key off her table, according to a police report. Brown allegedly flipped over a coffee table, almost striking the woman’s 4-year-old daughter, then grabbed the woman’s hair and punched her head repeatedly, the report said.

As the woman corralled her daughter and 3-year-old son upstairs, Brown said he’d hurt them, too, and threatened to kill her, the report said. After dragging her around by her hair, Brown allegedly threatened to plant marijuana inside the home. He then fled on foot.

Officers took the noticeably upset woman to the police station because she feared Brown would return now that he had a key, the report said. While she was there, Brown indeed returned to the house. Officers arrested him there and took him to the Erie County jail, where he remains without bond.
