About 15 teens or young men brutally beat a 17-year-old boy Friday at Huron River Fest, according to police and the victim's mother.

Even after beating Nathaniel Enderly unconscious, the assailants didn't stop until a woman called police.

Immediately after the attack — at about 10:30 p.m. — a retired U.S. Marine found Enderly lying face-down on the pavement in the 200 block of Williams St., a police report said.

Enderly had stopped breathing, so the Marine performed a "chest manipulation" on his lungs to start him breathing again, said Melissa Baker, Enderly's mother.

Huron police and firefighters arrived at the scene and stabilized Enderly before taking him to Firelands Regional Medical Center.

Doctors used five stitches to seal a wound on Enderly's chin, and six stitches for a cut on his nose. He was also treated for a concussion, Baker said.

"He's getting better, but he's still kind of out of it," Baker said. "Doctors told us it's pretty normal for someone who's recovering from a concussion."

The fight was likely the boiling point in a long-running feud between two groups of teenage boys — one group from Sandusky, the other from Huron, Baker said.

Come On Sandusky

Well a mother gets jumped in Sandusky for protecting her children and now a yound boy gets jumped between a group of Huron boys and Sandusky boys. Wonder why only boy from Huron got yes once again JUMPED?! Oh yeah bc Sandusky has a crap full of COWARDS. Cant anyone in this city fight one on one, or better yet walk away from a fight?

 

SitandSpin

Sandumpy's trash is now spilling over into Huron.......NIH

Exxcellent

In no way does this make this right, but groups of boys have been fighting forever. When I was young it was Perkins against Sandusky. Margaretta against Perkins etc. So it is not just a Sandusky thing.

I hope the young man will recover completely and I hope he turns in the names of the attackers because they could have killed him. Whatever happened to a good old fashioned fight where you got a black eye and a swollen lip. Now they have to beat each other unconsious and then keep beating him?

Perkins2060

Sandusky is nothing but a trash filled dump full of low lifes. 

Exxcellent

Yep. All of 44870. Trash. Perkins2060 is trash also.

wiredmama222

Cracker.....do you live or think you live in an area that is any different?  PLEASE!  It isn't location it is the lack of parenting. 

Perkins2060

I see my internet stalker is back.  So sorry you couldn't get out before the bubble bursted cracker.

my oh my

I was at the riverfest last weekend and it is right back to where it was before. A drunk fest with cops walking around turning a blind eye to several incidents which I witnessed firsthand to be violations of the law.............NO MORE RIVERFEST!!!!!!!!   

Amerian Dad

In no way is this acceptable! But it's typical. No pride, no heart, no structure with these young men. In our history there have always been rivalries. Its just that back in the day, the two having differences, settled it between them.......
This far from over. Now the group of boys from Huron will more than likely seek some sort of retaliation. I hope the young man recovers and listens to a previous post, turn the punks in.....so this doesn't happen again, only somewhere else.
And for u Huronites, this isn't a Sandusky issue. Apparently your uppity class community has there own thug problem that has clashed w/thugs from Sandusky. Don't condemn Sandusky's problem, until u clean up your own!

wiredmama222

I  totally agree with you. This has to stop.  Just look at the facts.   There is an overcrowding in jails.  Kids LIVE to fight anymore and those who do not are the prey.  Someone....and I mean parents....have grown less responsible for their offspring.  Want an eye opening experience....try teaching.  You get to see the lack of caring by parents and the atmosphere of youth close up and personal.  These are the people who one day will care for us.....how scary is that? 

wiredmama222

The problem is NOT location (city) but the fact that these kids feel free to beat up another kid.  Whyt  is this?  Does it go back to lack of respect for one's fellow man?  I think it does.  Some parents have no control over their kids and turn a blind eye to what they do and who they hang with. 

Kids seem to just do as they please and want without a care.  We are guilty of not raising this generation only observing them.  What happened to parental control?  Why all these gangs and these shooting?  Because parents are not parents any more.  They simple give up because it is hard to raise a kid without an effort, it takes to put them on and keep them on the right path.  Some parents are not willing to assume that responsiblity. 

When parents stop caring more about their own lives than those of their kids, maybe...just maybe...this kind of thing would stop. 

Just a thought.

I hope they find the cowards. Beating someone senseless deserves extended jail time. I'm wondering if Nathaniel's name is spelled Enderle? Well-known family name in Huron. Good people. Thank you Nathaniel for being such a Good Samaritan and coming to this young man's rescue. ^5

I agree.....we need to get rid of the beer booths. You can do better Huron.

Buckeyessuck

Let me start this off firstly by saying I feel bad for this boy and i wish him the best, may the kids who did this get caught and taught a lesson. Also growing up in sandusky we had these type of spats often maybe not to this serious of a beating but we often fought perkins/huron kids because for some reason they thought they were better for us. Perkins 2060 prolly was there parents and i see why they thought that now. i love perkins people who think that there better then sandusky people there so ignorant and think because they live in perkins there excluded from "us". Perkins is better then Sandusky why?? they have less people? They have better education? They are "better parents"? man that silver spoon must have tasted good growing up. Sandusky is going down hill for many reason and its starts with our youth. That is correct is that the lack of parenting? Lack of activities to occupy them? Seems society is turning there back on us. I for one worked with under privilaged kids in the sandusky area when there was a budget for that seems like money dried up for that so it would only make sense that crime would be more active in sandusky then all mighty perkins but its people like perkins 2060 that fuel the fire instead of trying to put it out...

Informed

I'm a little confused.  Did the fight actually occur at Riverfest or outside of Riverfest on Williams St. where the unconcscious boy was found?  Williams St. is a block over from Riverfest.  I find it hard to believe that 15 guys beat up on one that badly at Riverfest.  Cops are all over and while they overlook some things, they would not have overlooked that.  Then again, I guess something like that would happen quickly.  

myname

I agree, Perkins is much better than Sandusky.  Sandusky is trash and cracker sounds like a classy one.

Perkins2060

You people are a lot dumber than you sound if you think for one minute that Perkins isn't better than Sandumpy.

We were actually stopped when we heard a man yell.. Man this kid was just jumped by a bunch of kids.. then the group reappeared and the guy told them the cops were coming.  Glad to see the Huron Police and squad appear before we even hit the next light.  There are juvenile problems all over, its time the courts stop hand slapping them and let them learn a lesson.  We never had this kind of problem, it stems from upbringing within the kids homes.  Thanks to the man who didnt leave this kids side, he could have very well walked away.  Thumbs up to good citizens still out there.

 The Huron Riverfest has turned into 1 big drunk fest, garbage fest, bathroom fest, litter fest with noone gaining in Huron except for bars. The town turns into 1 big dumpster with beer cans, cigarette butts, diapers,(yes diapers!) littered all over. You can't find a parking place because everyone is charging including what is suppose to be 'public' parking.

There is always trouble most of which goes unreported because by the time you make the call to the police the trouble makers have left. So for 3 days of 'hell' most residents have to endure. Its just not worth it..It is set in too small an area. Its a nice area but not suffecient for a fair. 

Hurons fair needs to be where it can handle the volume of people and traffic flow. The Boat Basin is just too small. Huron Boat Basin has all kinds of other festivals that people can enjoy without all the problems.

@ Mime Bloggling:  I am aware of an incident where a man was attacked, knocked unconcious, suffered brain bleeds, spent 1 week in intensive care, another week in step-down care, and 4 1/2 years later is still unable to work.  Our wonderful justice system gave the convicted felon, 3 years probation!  Yes, right here in Judge Tone's court.  Go figure!

Hmm

my2cents-lots of local non profit groups raise money at Riverfest, so it isn't just the bars that benefit.

Any description of these Sandusky kids?  Height, weight, color?  Please advise so we can keep on the look out.

Buckeyessuck

Your a joke perkins2060 thanks for my laughter for the afternoon.We should just put a great wall of perkins ave up.

myname

I like that wall idea.  Great way to keep the trash out of Perkins and north of Perkins Ave.

althenaruby

I dont understand what the group of kids get out of it.  They cant even act hard because it took 15 of them to beat up 1!  "Yeah I beat the shit out this boy, me and my 14 friends"  Right...your scary.

all you pepole on here are down talking sandusky are  are dumb beacause the diffrence  between san dusky and perkins is the nice houses and and big yards  i went to perkins  and there where two gangs the 8 ball crips and th white knights and there where fights all the time between them and also fights with sandusky huron margeretta  its even a gang in huron now and in margaretta  even norwalk had a story on their gang problem  and what about the young black teen that was jumped  at river fest i dont see that in the paper  i have a feeling that this isnt some random act of violence  im not saying its right put come on pepole look at the whole picture

A man is killed behind the Sandusky Mall about 23 years ago, where, Perkins twp...... Man stabbed at mexican restaurant, where, Perkins twp......fights constsantly at the Punp, where, Perkins twp......JFS Director arrested for Rape, where does he live, Perkins twp.....these are just a few examples.....yep Perkins2060, Perkins is just so much better and has more quality people......there is no community beyond reproach!!!!! It's not where u live, it's a people issue!

Look at all the wars and how evenly they are matched.  We are taught subliminally from a young age if you can't win on your own; just get some allies to help you squash the competition.  I would argue jumping people is the American thing to do.

Perkins2060

All of those scum bags are from areas other than Perkins.  Voltz grew up on 5th street and went to St. Mary's.  Build the wall to keep this trash out of our Township!

althenaruby

Oh shut up Perkins.  No one is better than anyone.  Get over yourself

Perkins2060

Yes huh.  You are just jealous.

althenaruby

Jealous of what? What do you honestly have that is better than what I got?

Perkins2060

Look around your house.  Renters all over your street.  Thugs trolling around all hours of the night.  Shootings all the time.  Real nice place to live.  You're right.  Sandumpy is better.  You got me.

Perkins I hope your invisible line helps provide you with a safe feeling as you sleep.  Isn't the jail located in perkins?  I would petition the township president to get that rezoned if i were you. 

Perkins2060

It does.  I feel much safer in Perkins than I ever did when I lived in Sandumpy.

I and many others left Sandumpy while the getting was good.  No way of fixing that mess north of Perkins Ave.

Isnt the hospital in Sandusky? So perkins, were you born in Sandusky??

he could have been born from spent fecal matter at the city sewage plant?

Hey, Perkin2060 -

You said, "Sandusky is nothing but a trash filled dump full of low lifes."

Did you magically transmogrify into a Piece of Specialness when you slithered out?

Buckeyessuck

Hmm looks like perkins2060 might be calling the kettle black here..just another peice of trash that moved from sandusky out to the finer living of perkins. Im guessing you prolly live in columbus park n e ways. As a grown adult your making me hate perkins residents even more then i did as a child. I know i shouldn,t let one ignorant apple ruin it for the rest of the perkins residents but maybe sandusky should cut off there water since its prolly scum n e ways. buckeye cable shouldnt allow them to have internet connection and a matter of fact we should even charge them to come look at the water or our parks for that matter. i have no business to cross perkins ave lets start a boycott of perkins as sandusky residents and let them have to raise taxes. we wont have to worry because our taxes wont go up were a sh*t hole..

Perkins2060

Sounds good as long as you stay north of Perkins Ave and don't visit the mall, movie theater, restaurants, etc.  Sounds like a fair trade to me!  One less piece of Sandumpy trash milling around our Township!

twiz

Is there really that much rage between Perkins Township and Sandusky? Give it a rest! There are bad people in all cities and townships. I live i Perkins and I go to Sandusky all the time. There are probably neighborhoods I wouldn't walk alone at night in, but come on. We tell our kids not to fight and that violence is bad, but adults get on here and fight fight fight... it's childish and rediculous!

~Just my 2 Cents,

Buckeyessuck

The mall???? have you been to that half empty crap hole why would anyone wanna go there and you bring up the police..does perkins have a police station yet or they still squatting with the sheriffs dept???

shellfishguy

 15 on one.. Doesnt surprise me one bit but they weird thing is where was his friends? i Know for a fact if i had 3 of my dudes with me we would put those 15 little kids back where they came from. Point is people need to live life and stop with the petty things like fighting because karma will haunt you untill the day you die, hope the kid is doing alright its a shame sandusky kids have to be like this after what happened with officer dunn(r.i.p) GROW UP KIDS! Seriously though, enough is enough. Sandusky needs to be a placce to enjoy not a place to avoid, get the trash out of sandusky please.

Perkins2060

Buckeyessuck:  I was going to say Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards but since you live in Sandumpy you would have no reason to go to a home improvement store.

althenaruby

Im just  a firm believer in you cant blame the whole for what a few are doing.  Just like i'm not going to hate on Perkins for having Perkins2060

Perkins2060

Sandumpy's problems are not caused by a few.  There is a whole lot of trash causing your problems.

Enjoy!

frizzlefrap

it's friday, the 15th, and i have not heard one thing about this incident. must be pretty hush hush ...... were the culprits from sandusky white or black? ...... just wondering!

hello

Really??? It's NOT just Sandusky kids that were there. There were also kids from Huron that jumped him so don't just target one city. It is not Sandusky that is a bad place, it is the people. You cannot judge the whole city of Sandusky because a few people want to be stupid teenagers. If the parents would raise there children right then maybe we wouldn't have this problem. Maybe if TV shows and movies didn't put violence and sex out there so much, half of the problems wouldn't be upon us. These parents need to step up and do there jobs as parents. Don't be your kids friend.. be there parent!

Julie R.

Why does everybody say that Perkins is not part of Sandusky? Don't they all have the same zip code? How also do they know that the group of teen-age boys from Sandusky "that have had a long-running feud with the group of boys from Huron" aren't from Perkins? After all, Perkins and Huron have been long-time rivals for years in football and basketball. Of course, I really can't see a vicious fight breaking out like this over a friendly rivalry in sports but anymore who knows!

Buckeyessuck

hey perkins2060 you do know with a little work you could be exposed from somthing called a i.p address dont you? but by all means someone from a crappy town like me surely couldnt be smart enough to figure that out right?

my2cents

What I find more interesting is the fact that this story JUST made it to the paper. This happened last Friday?

my oh my

The riverfest or whatever it is called nowadays is right back to where it used to be that being a drunk fest...I witnessed some unpleasant events there last week as the cops walked on by and turned their heads to the incidents......NO MORE RIVERFEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GottaloveNorwalk

We came late... brought our own soda and snacks and enjoyed the fireworks.. We didnt want to have the kids see all the drunks so we sat far away from the festival itself.  It was a nice fireworks display to bad for the excessive drinking.  It takes it away from a family event, its more for the single younger crowd who like to waste money on alcohol

streak

Does Sandusky have its problems? YES Does Perkins have its problems? Yes  Does Huron have its problems? Yes    Every city has wanna be thugs, etc. Yes, that means you Perkins and Huron, you have kids who think they are hard and Sandusky does as well. Let's get all of the thugs together and drop them off in Chicago to see how hard they are. Sandusky realizes it problems, but does not have a way to deal with them like the rest of society. Perkins and Huron handle it the same way they always have and that is simple reasoning of it "can't be my child". Within 10 years, we will be a county school district and everybody will have to learn to get along and that includes the communities.

Julie R.

I find it interesting that there are so many comments on this story yet hardly any at all on the story about the evil little b*stard that obviously raped his stepmother after he murdered her. Is it because people are just naturally assuming that this group of teens from Sandusky was black? I guess we'll just have to wait and see on that one.

Perkins2060

Sorry if I offended anyone.   I love Sandusky.  I went to SHS.  Long live the Blue Streak!  Go SHS!

Perkins2060

And oh by the way, It's Friday!  Get drunk!!!

 

I am!

Perkins2060

Sorry for getting all of you worked up.

 

GO BLUE!

bear14

okay, seriously people. GROW UP! a kid got jumped and all you can do is argue about whos town is better? really? do you even care about the kid or are you that immature and self-absorbed that you cant get your head out of your own little pathetic world? i am younger than most of you on here and i am seriously disgusted. you people are adults and you are fighting like little kids! EVERY SINGLE TOWN has bad people and good people. NO town is better than another. no wall is going to stop the problems. Nathaniel i'm sorry this happened to you and i hope that you get better soon and the people who did this to you get caught. for those of you that are concerned about more than arguing about what town is better. good for you! as for the rest of you that can only argue about towns and stuff that has nothing to do with this boy and makes you sound self-absorbed and dumb, grow up and get a life!!

gammyof3

WOOOOW... PERKINS2060: or watever it is.. get ur mind right.. perkins is sandusky first off.. and it doesnt matter where the hell ur from sandusky..perkins.. huron... port clinto wtf does it matter.. i went to perkins my whole life and i still aint gonna down sandusky.. kids are gona be kids NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE FROM.. your just ignorant as hell..honestly... i know lots of people from perkins that went to prison and ext... perkins is NO better then sandusky...i just dont kno even what to say after reading all these comments besides your ignorent..

nate

 its nathaniel enderby, thanks 

Mama of 4

First off Nate I am so sorry what happened to you. I am the mother that was jumped in Sanduksy nad it embarrassing and hurtful not to mention unnecssary. And what a couple people said was right they are cowards and certinaly dont look tough for beating up a kid 15 one one. They look like lil weak punks who could fight you one on one so they brought all thier 'cousins' to help. Sad thing is all these kids are probably around the same age-17- and will the adults in this town soon.

Second Huron isnt that great of a place to live. I lived there with my parents and by meself for 10 years and I hate it. There is crime -all be it not as bad as Sandusky OR PERKINS yes them too- but it happens and is kept under wraps. ALso if you are not born there, have family in the sity or are rich, you are most likely an outcast. I hated going to school. And not just me, plenty of the people there are very stuck on themselves- not all but alot. Just had to get that out there.  And I also think that  agree with the people that said Huron shouldnt have the Riverfest of they dont have enough police. Williams St right RIGHT BY THE RIVERFEST- which is surprising that no one but one guys saw anything considering I went down and up Williams St. every night during Riverfest and it was quite busy. Hire more from other town for the event, call in reserve, on one gets a day off during Riverfest, something.

Last off people from wether it be Perkins, Sandusky, or Huron need to stop fighting. Here we are telling kids to stop fighting and we are fighting. Maybe the ones that are fighting are ones raising the kids who fight? Be proactive no reactive.

cockynurse

 Doesn't matter what kind of fued was in the past-these boys knew better.  No respect for a human life. What's next?   The only relieving aspect of this is there were no weapons involved...this time.  They need the strictest of punishment laid on them to stop this escalating behavior in its tracks.

yea right

yes i agree Perkins is much better than Sandumpy..

perkins cops are fatter..why they have all the good dounut shops

schools are better..why they are newer than sandusky's

Perkins is the "gateway" to sandusky..aka US 250

the list goes on...lol

tax payer

I agree with my oh my says, the Riverfest has gotten to where the former Water Festival was years ago. It becomes less of a family event, turns into drunks all over the place, inappropiate actions, and cops walking around making fun of the guy who is disabled. I am ashamed of what we allow people to do at these public events at a park and boat basin that I continue to pay for. Put-In-Bay has nothing on Huron when Riverfest is happening. Teens on the loose should not surprise anyone, but this happened on a busy street where there were folks all over the place. Did no one observe this?

my oh my

Put in Bay Police are the same way they turn a blind eye to almost everything that happens over there.They dont want any bad press. I for one could be a huge whisteblower on what goes on over there. I know a lot of bad things from there..........They fail to mention there's at least one RAPE every weekend,every bar over serves and serves underage patrons.They have smoking in the bars and illegal gambling and the bartenders are slipping drugs in girls drinks so they can rape them.......Need I say more????

Katelih-Trailer...

 I agree tax payer....I saw way too many drunk and obnoxious people last year. I would have loved to watch the great fireworks display but I chose not to attend this year. My 8 year old son doesnt need to be around sooo many drunk people. I also missed out on the cabbage and noodles. On a positive note...I didnt have to witness a group of savage teenagers beating a kid who is already down ! Like you said...Did NO ONE observe this ???  Sad...sad....sad !

What that guy did to his family was appaling but this was a 15 on 1 brutal beating.  Were they black?  There must have been "spectators".  They knew he was out but continually kicked when he was unconscience.  Bunch of heros.

Taxpayer

FIFTEEN against ONE is too much for anyone to fight.  They should ALL get arrested and held accountable for FELONIOUS ASSAULT and possibly ATTEMPTED MURDER.  I would like to know what triggered 15 youth to decide to beat this kid to near death.  WHAT was the causal factor that 15 individuals looked at ALL the people at River Fest and decided to pick on this 17-year-old kid?  There is a story about a Huron High School student getting arrested for intoxication.  The same student got expelled from school.  I WONDER if this might be a related?  I hope not.  I WONDER what caused 15 people to simply PICK ON this kid and NO others?  Notice the "politically correct" Sandusky Register FAILS to list any description of the massive amount of assailants or suspects from Sandusky.  Does ANY one wonder WHY?  Can ANYONE explain that?  I can see Melissa Baker, mother, on a soapbox in support of her son.  I cannot blame her as 15 against 1 is a heinously violent crime.  But, her synopsis and excuse that two groups (GANGS) of teenage boys, one from Huron and the other from Sandusky boiling over is a LIE!  If it were true, then she just implicated she has knowledge that her own son is a member of a GANG.  Hey, Sandusky Register, how about some "investigative follow-up" on this story to find out WHO is being arrested for this?  If ANY crime requires investigation by the media or LE, this one definitely qualifies.  Can you find out if there will be any arrests?  If NOT, then WHY?  This story has substance and should not be swept under the carpet.  The River Fest will NEVER be a success for a family venue if there is no follow up to this incident.

Notice the "politically correct" Sandusky Register FAILS to list any description of the massive amount of assailants or suspects from Sandusky. Does ANY one wonder WHY?

 We keep hearing that it was fifteen on one who did the counting? Why didnt they help? Yes lets hear what was the color of the thugs ? How do they know they were from sandusky and not from norwalk , or perkins or anywhere else? Did they yell out we from sandusky ? Huron is known for covering up its crimes.
