An 18-year-old Sandusky man is being held in Erie County Jail as a suspect in the stabbing death of a 24-year-old Sandusky man he referred to as his uncle.

Jared Rhodes, 24, Sandusky, suffered three stab wounds during a fight that took place at about 3 a.m. in a home at 1308 Clinton Street, police said. He was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center but died at 2 p.m.

The suspect, Tre'Vonte Adcock, known as "Tre," 18, 2000 block of Camp St., was arrested at the scene for "misconduct at an emergency" when he interfered with officers, police said. He was identified as a suspect after police interviewed witnesses.

Police have recovered the knife which they believe was used in the stabbing, Detective Sgt. Dana Newell said.

"The knife was found at the scene," Newell said.

A police report lists a silver butterfly knife being found at the house.

Police believe the stabbing was the result of a dispute between the two men that rapidly escalated, Newell said.

"It was an argument. I don't want to say what it was about," Newell said.

The disagreement turned into a physical altercation and then a knife became involved, he said.

Police have been in touch with Prosecutor Kevin Baxter and believe they have a "solid" case to present to Baxter when they meet with him Monday, said Det. Gary Wichman, the lead investigator in the case. Detectives Lester Peters and Dave West also assisted in the investigation.

Despite his youth, police are familiar with Adcock, who has a criminal record, Newell said.

Adcock referred to Rhodes as his uncle, Newell said.

Bobby Rhodes, Jared Rhodes' father, said Jared was the youngest of his five children and said Adcock is his nephew.

Newell said Rhodes was stabbed three times but did not identify where the wounds were.

A police report filed by Sgt. Eric Graybill says that police were dispatched at 3:03 a.m. to 1308 Clinton St. for a person who was bleeding. As they went to the scene, dispatchers told the officers that someone had been stabbed.

Police were met at the front door by Anita Yado. The officers found Herlandes Delph, Tyran Sullivan and Adcock standing over Rhodes, who was on the kitchen floor, bleeding profusely. 

Police said Adcock was shouting at Rhodes and trying to pick him up. The police said they tried to ask what had happened, but no one would tell them. As the officers tried to help Rhodes and see what his injuries where, Adcock interfered with them and yelled profanities at them, the report states.

The fire department arrived and began to treat Rhodes. Police arrested Adcock, who was placed in a police car and eventually sprayed with pepper spray after he kicked the interior of the car and was warned to stop, the report said.

Referring to Adcock, Newell said, "By his own admission, he was consuming alcohol."

Bobby Rhodes, interviewed at the front door of the Clinton Street house as Christmas lights twinkled on the front of the porch, described his son as the youngest of five children and said he was  student at BGSU Firelands.

He described his son as "a jolly guy, a jolly person. He liked to laugh and make people laugh."

Bobby Rhodes said he was concerned that the police did not take his son's wounds seriously enough and did not get him to treatment in time. But he said he was not present in the house when the incident took place and said he lives elsewhere in Sandusky.

The police report listed an address for Jared Rhodes that's on the 200 block of Lawrence St..

A woman at the listed address, however, said she did not know who Rhodes is.

Newell said he's pleased with the patrol officers who responded to the scene when the stabbing was called in. They secured the area and made sure that evidence would not be tampered with, Newell said.

"That's always a key," he said. "The patrol division did an excellent job."

Jared was putting together quite the record himself. Seems to have taken a break in 2010 and the first half of 2011 then again it could have been the 2nd degree felony assault he was convicted of that put him out of circulation.

Ugh...one guy...one murder...let the courts and public pretenders deal with it...we have much bigger fish to fry...

24productions

It doesn't matter who had so called "accomplishments" it matters that not one but two families have lost loved ones. RIP Jared.

allrhetoricanyway

Seriously??? I don't care if this loser was raised by WOLVES...it's called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!! You wield a knife to take another humans life...you GET THE CHAIR!! People piss me off on a regular basis, doesn't mean I can kill them just because my "daddy" was a loser!!! Facts! Brass tacks!! Get over your HOOD mentality and realize that the world does NOT revolve around you LOSERS!! The rest of us want you criminals shackled and stuck with the thin needle!!

2cents

47% er, living off our taxe $$$, don't waste your time!

allrhetoricanyway

whatever the 47%er is will be judged by the same MAN! he needs to be taken out of a world that deserves and desires PEACE!

starryeyes83

Personally, I prefer Good Ol' Sparky ;]

luvblues2

Not to mention the original charge was attacking the first responders.

allrhetoricanyway

Thank GOD I could never be a first responder!! Things would be much different! I believe in "survival of the fittest"! But I do have great faith in those that are our first responders!!

luvblues2

Take a ball cap right off the shelf and leave it flat billed. Put it on your head and twist it a bit. Throw in some gang signals and wear your pants saggin. Make every one you know proud. You're Downtown Sandtown!

mrjsiah

What gang signs . I wear my hat to side sometime should i bend the bill all up pull my pants to me chest as to give me a weggie. Next time i see a farmer working in their field saggin im going to tell them some one thats goes by luvbles say pull your pants to your chest because your making your family look bad

luvblues2

I wear my pants with the waist where it should be. At the waist. I also wear a belt so they do not sag. You will not see me with a camel-toe nor the color of my underwear. I won't wear my ballcap sideways nor flatbilled because it's just a flat out gangsta signal. Go ahead and walk the field to that farmer and tell him that. Hope y'all make it back to the car all safe and sound.

richrs

what you ought to tell that farmer is thanks for helping feed a nation. Because without farmer it would be just like the old country in the hood. Eating each other.

luvblues2

He didn't rape any little kids. He will be put in general population. His pretty little teen aged butt is screwed. Bein' the "good kid" he is and all.

richrs

luv,
they put child molesters in GP also, and trust me when I tell you he won't have any problems. Be like old home week.

KURTje

Infer that cops might be the problem... **** THAT! - Look in the mirror -that's probably why they were there.

he said she said

Ok. Jared is dead. Tre acted a fool when the police and paramedics got there, that is why Jared didn't get treated right away. It wasn't the police fault, it wasn't the paramedics fault, it was Tre's fault. Paramedics can't go into a hostile environment and the way Tre was acting, it was hostile. So blaming the police/paramedics can stop.

Because of the circumstances surrounding his injuries, the hospital locked down the ER. No one was allowed to go back and see if it was Jared, how he looked, or anything. Another person came in with a knife wound and to be honest, I didn't know Sandusky PD had this many officers on the payroll. I saw more officers there than I do in a month. There were so many officers asking everyone who were we there for, if we had anything to do with both or just one, were we in any way involved, or were we there at either place.

Jared was taken to surgery and none of his family had seen him to let him know that we were there for him. When he came out of surgery and put into ICU he wasn't fine. He was not out of any danger because there was a lot of blood loss and he had to be given blood, he was put into a drug induced coma so his body could rest and recover.

At 2pm the doctor pronounced him dead. The staff worked on him for 20 minutes and could not revive him.

Jared wasn't perfect but neither was any of us on here. I know of only one man that walked on water and nam one of us here is that man. That man is the only one that should sit in judgment of anyone, not us.

So place the blame on whatever or whoever you feel that you need to. It doesn't justify what Tre did to his family member. It doesn't justify that his girlfriend, pregnant with Jared's first baby, will have to raise this child without her father. It doesn't justify that two families lost two of their family members, Jared and Tre. One we will have fond memories of and the other will be able to be seen and touched behind bars.

Stop placing blame on everyone else but who should be blamed, Tre. Not the police, the paramedics, the hospital, but Tre. The past is the past, leave it there. We should be thinking of the future and what can be done about the violence that is trying to take over our city instead of pointing a finger at who killed Jared.

RIP Nephew I love you and you will be missed!!

asweetnessabove

VERY, VERY WELL SAID!!!

It's sad isn't that so many people would rather blame the help than the offender?

I'm terribly sorry for your loss, it's never easy under any circumstance because the outcome is the same. You can miss them, talk to them, but they can not answer nor hug you in time of need. :(

God Bless you.

Sanduskybasketball2

Now us tax payers have to pay for him to sit in Jail, I think Obama should make a law if you kill someone, the victims family has the right to kill the killer,
enough said,

allrhetoricanyway

@ He Said She Said! You have taken quite a culpable opportunity in expressing your thoughts..I am rather surprised to see such an eloquent release of the process of innocence. You are right. The rest remains to be seen!
