Erie County grand jury indicts 37

An Erie County grand jury indicted a Sandusky man on serious charges this month for a May 29 beating.

Bryson King, 22, of the 1200 block of Huntington Ave., was indicted for attempted murder and felonious assault.

Sandusky police found Melvin Coleman, 25, of W. Market St. unconscious on the floor of a Wayne Street apartment at about 1 a.m. May 29, according to a police report.

Coleman was rushed to a Toledo hospital for a fractured skull and crushed windpipe as investigators tried to track down his attacker, police said.

Witnesses at the scene told officers of King’s alleged involvement, and police later learned a dispute had broken out, possibly over a woman, Sandusky police Detective Ken Nixon said at the time.

King was located at a woman’s Huron Avenue home about seven hours after the alleged beating and police charged him with felonious assault.

Last week’s grand jury decided to indict him on that felonious assault charge, along with an attempted murder charge.

King is being held at the Erie County jail on $40,000 bond.
