Shakill Fenderson, 19, of the 1600 block of Remington Ave., was charged with aggravated menacing and aggravated robbery, along with underage consumption.

Police dispatchers received a call at about 2:30 p.m April 22 from a man who was held at gunpoint in his downtown apartment. The victim said the robber made him remove his clothes and lay on the ground while he stole cash, his wallet, a cell phone and set of keys from his apartment.

Fenderson was identified by a resident on Thursday in connection with the incident, police said.  

His arrest came as a result of police piecing together bits of information from several sources, Sandusky police Detective Dana Newell said. Officers knew of Fenderson’s usual locations and they found him at one Thursday night. 

“Everything kind of snowballed,” Newell said. 

Courtney Yancey, 23, also of the 1600 block of Remington Ave., was indicted by an Erie County grand jury Monday for complicity to commit aggravated robbery. Newell said she was arrested for involvement in the April 22 incident.

Sandusky police are still investigating a string of other armed robberies in which Fenderson may be involved. They’re also looking at six or seven other unidentified people.

At least one of the robberies has been documented in a police report, but Newell said detectives have been gathering a lot information from residents who chose not to file reports at the time of the robberies.

Newell hopes other people who may have been robbed by Fenderson will come forward with their stories. As they investigate Fenderson’s alleged criminal activity, Sandusky detectives are also working in conjunction with law enforcement officials in another state.  

Fenderson was charged with felonious aggravated assault, felonious armed robbery, burglary and obstruction near Atlanta, Ga., in March 2012, according to an online database. 

He remains in the Erie County jail on $56,000 bond.

What a upstanding citizen he is. Like he would ever be able to find a decent job with all the ink on his neck. Just lock his tail up and save the public the trouble

There are plenty of polite, responsible people with ink on their necks.

This man however isn't one of them, but please don't lump all people with neck tattoos into a group.

I would hire him to stand in front of the public representing my company looking like he does NOT A CHANCE. I have a lot of tattoos myself but still have enough sense to keep my self marketable for steady worth while employment. We always need mcdonalds food workers or dish washers or general laborers, NOBODY will take you serious looking like that. Fair it is not but it is REALITY

The Bizness

I agree with you 100%, but you are missing my point. A person with neck tattoos could still be a great human being.

The era of "we need to get past this PC crap!!" seems to have lasted much, much longer than the actual PC era.

if obozo had a son..

The Bizness

Wow, racism and stupidity on these posts are astounding.

ladydye_5

Obama said it himself with a different African American boy, and it was ok. Someone else says it with a different kid and it is racism. I am kinda of tired of everything someone says about the president being a "racist comment" I can talk about his bad taste in ties and shirts and someone would call me a racist. Heaven forbid you just do not like the man and the way he does his job.

The Bizness

I disagree with a lot of what Pres. Obama is doing or has done but this was clearly meant to be a racist comment. No, I would not think if you talked about his ties or suits that you were racist.

mikeylikesit

racist? no. that card will not get you a damn thing here..

The Bizness

If your comment wasn't meant to be racist, what did you mean by it?

mikeylikesit

there are the similarities that obozo himself pointed out with the other thug, but I was just pointing out that they are both criminals, you know, like father, like son..

The Bizness

Ok, I stand corrected...

"My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," Obama said. "All of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves."

He was saying that because his son would be a young black man, not that his son would be a thug. You can have your opinion though.

deertracker

The comment was CLEARLY meant to be racist as usual when the suspect is BLACK. Don't try to equate how someone may dress with racist comments. How ridiculous. Also, there is no evidence Trayvon was a "thug" yet some still call him one. Why?

mikeylikesit

your card is no good here..

deertracker

Correction, your card is no good here. Say what you will. It is cowards like you that back away from comments once called on them. What does your son look like ?

mikeylikesit

coward? damn! you're so tough.. white guilt is not one of my problems. I call it like it is with no political correctness getting in my way.

deertracker

Toughness has nothing to do with it. Does your son look like the guy in the picture? Do you even have a son? Would he look like the guy in the picture? I rest my case! BTW, white guilt is not one of my problems either, I just call it the way it is!

ladydye_5

So the president himself can make the comment and it is OK? But when someone else points out the obvious it is racist?

deertracker

Context, it's all about context. Get it????

ladydye_5

Oh I get it. I know exactly. But the point is, it was said. Everyone gets their panties in a bunch over CONTEXT. Point is one person says something and it is ok...another person says it and it is racial.

The Bizness

What do you think he meant by his statement then ladydye_5?

ladydye_5

Who's comment the presidents or mikeylikesit? Both comments said the SAME THING. If the President (a black man) had a son he could look like Trayvon (a black teen). IF the President had a son it could look like the guy in the story above. Same comment...just the CONTEXT is different. I could really care less about EITHER comment. My point is the fact that you cannot say or do anything anymore without someone screaming racism. My point is....when the president said it NOONE called it racist, someone else says it and everyone cries racism! So to answer your question....I think he meant that the president said one black teen could be what his own son would look like .....that this man in the story could be the presidents son also.

The Bizness

Ok, I guess we just agree to disagree

deertracker

Nice try ladydye, but wrong guy! What's that saying about pigs and lipstick?

TboneWalkerJr

Yet they STILL let you post, eh Bizness? Troof HURT?

8ballinthesidepocket

especially your post! The guy is a gutlesss punk!

The Bizness

My post? Which one? Please elaborate.

A piece of %^(@ is a piece of %@!$ no matter what color or race. It seems to me that Sandusky has been filling up with them more and more. It also seems that the good residents have moved out or want to. There you have the problem. The level of population in Sandusky that is hard working (legally) Tax paying, upstanding & family oriented has been harder to find.

The Bizness

I agree that he is a piece of work, should get a sever punishment.

I am a good resident of the city and do not want to leave, and will continue to work to improve the condition of the city. I can't wait vote in the next election for the Commissioners.
