Two Sandusky men ended up in jail Sunday after confronting an alleged purse thief at gunpoint, according to Sandusky police reports.

Cedrick Brown, 25, of the 200 block of Townsend St., and Darrius Martin, 19, of the 1200 block of Buchanan St., were both charged with aggravated menacing, inducing panic, assault and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors.

Martin told police he and Brown tracked down First Street resident Tyler Nutter, 18, at about 4:30 p.m. and confronted him about stealing from their family member.

Nutter had already appeared in court last week on charges of misdemeanor theft for the alleged crime.

Still, Martin and Brown went looking for him, the report said, and they caught up with him in the 1500 block of Hayes Ave. When Nutter denied stealing the purse, Martin punched him in the face and pulled out a Smith & Wesson .38 Special, the report said.

That's not vigilante justice. It's just another thug with a gun on the street.

in case people on here havent been keeping up on the news around sandusky , there have been a number of shootings in Sandusky , And did this guy have  a permit for the 38 ? Doubt it very much , and now this is one less gun on our streets and no one got shot or killed , there by the grace of God .

Shooting a gun is a cowards way to solve problems ,

 I can not believe that you can essentially hold someone at gunpoint and NOT get charged with a felony.  THIS is whats wrong with the justice system....

I agree. This isn't vigilante justice. Now had they witnessed some thug stealing an elderly person's purse and chased him down the street and held him until the police got there --- now THAT might be considered vigilante justice but pulling out a gun sure wouldn't be. So do they have a permit to carry a gun? If not, I also agree with --- where are the gun charges?

Black on black crime once again.  Nice job NAACP.

Nutter steal?  What an oxymoron statement!!  Why didn't Nutter steal the ball when he was on the b-ball team in high school??  Youth in Sandusky, WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO???  Instead of making Sandusky Proud you are thinking it's funny to disrespect people and their property.  All I can say is wait until you are older and some young kids mess up your car, your yard, your family.... It happened to an old neighbor kid of mine.  He used to find pleasure in vandalizing my parent's yard and his parents would stick up for him and say he didn't do it when we saw him do it.  Well, guess what, he already has been to prison twice and now he's back again, this time for stealing from his own father that defended him years ago and his mom is now deceased, thank God she doesn't have to know he's back in the slammer!  Some people never learn.  When you disgrace your family name, there is no more damage you can do and you damage yourself for the rest of your lives.  No good employer will even hire you as almost any good job comes with a background test and drug screen, so good luck kids!  You are making your own future and looks like the State will have to take care of you since you think all this violence is funny!  I don't condone vigilante justice, but maybe Charles Bronson had it right in his Death Wish movies or Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry movies!  Get the scum off the streets!!!

Hey Gene, if shooting a gun is a cowards way make sure when someone breaks into your home you just flail your hands and say "Get out, get out!" dont be a coward and pull a gun whatever you do.

OK, it's great thing for the community, but if you're not aleady logged on to Facebook, the link doesn't work and you can't even find the page in a search. I don't expect to be able to post to the wall without belonging to the group (Is it a group?) but anyone should be able to see it. Please fix.

This loser has over 41 entries on O brians web site. As usual O Brian has  suspended most of his jail terms. I did see he was bound over to the grand jury recently. O Brian had better start dishing out some harsh terms in jail and stop letting these criminals off, or come election time he will have to go back to his failed law practice. The people are sick and tired of being robbed, assaulted, and intimidated only for the criminal to receive a slap on the wrist by some weak wristed so called judge. It's time Obrian stepped up to the plate and did the job he was elected to do instead of making a mockery of our police dept, by letting the thugs walk basically free!!!

People are hilarious.  For months the Register commenters are telling people to  get a gun and that will stop the crime.  Thats exactly what this guy did.  He saw a crime and pulled his gun and now everyone is upset he had a gun?!? Make up your minds people.

419og

beacause their black

PerkinsTownshipRich

Maybe he should've pulled the gun when the crime was taking place not a week later, and after the scumbag has already been to court for the crime.

@althenaruby:  They didn't see a crime taking place i.e. stealing a family member's purse. The story says the guy appeared in court LAST WEEK on charges of misdemeanor theft for the alleged crime. Sounds like the court ~ if it's true ~ didn't do too much about it so they decided to take matters into their own hands.

beepx22

 thats not vigilantism, thats just dumb...

419og

yes tyler nutter is white and he got what he deserved beacause you dont walk up to someones car while there in it and snacth there purse he should be charged with strong armed robbery and all you pepole talking trash  if it where your mother you whould act the same way  and before you all go on bashing ced and darrius  you should know  that nutter is a gotti boy and instead of  getting  on here threating  to do something or saying i wish they would try me they actually took care of the problem they caught him at the scene and he got away  and it was on ging and towsend and the neighbors just watched but they wanna complian 

stepham2009

HELLOOO FOR ALL OF YOU ON HERE....TYLER NUTTER IS NOT WHITE AND HE IS NOT BLACK.....

HE IS BI-RACIAL! WHICH SHOULDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE BECAUSE HE COMMITTED A CRIME AND THEN SO DID THE MEN THAT ASSAULTED HIM.

THIS WHOLE THING COULD'VE BEEN AVOIDED HAD THESE 2 MEN JUST LET THE LAW DO IT'S JOB.....THE LAW'S NOT PERFECT.....BUT TAKING THE LAW INTO YOUR OWN HANDS IS NOT THE ANSWER EITHER.......SITTING IN JAIL FOR 20+ YEARS HAD HE KILLED THIS KID WOULD'VE SOLVED WHAT? WHAT GOOD WOULD IT HAVE DONE TO ANYONE INVOLVED?????

NOW NOT ONLY IS ONE PERSON'S LIFE SCREWED UP BY HIS OWN DOING SO ARE THE LIVES OF THE OTHER 2 AT THEIR OWN HANDS ALSO......PEOPLE NEED TO GET A CLUE AND A LIFE.....

 

stepham2009

@419og

I FEEL FOR THE WOMAN HE STOLE THE PURSE FROM BUT WHAT GOOD HAS THIS DONE? TYLER IS STILL OUT WALKING THE STREETS PROBABLY STILL DOING HIS DIRT....IF ONE OF THESE MEN WERE THE WOMAN'S SON OR RELATIVE NOW SHE WILL BE MORE OR LESS VICTIMIZED AGAIN BECAUSE SOMEONE SHE LOVES WILL ULTIMATELY SIT IN JAIL FOR THIS LIL PUNK.......

I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER HURT BY SOME COCKY LIL PUNK...I'VE BEEN THERE...BUT GETTING YOURSELF INTO TROUBLE IN THE NAME OF DOLING OUT JUSTICE WITH YOUR OWN HANDS NEVER SOLVES ANYTHING.....

"It's because I'm/they're black"~That excuse is getting old~really old~I believe it is used just to try to get out of trouble~throw the race card.    IT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE A CRIMINAL!

419og

@itsallaboutu so if ced was white would you feel the same way i never use the race  for the very reason you said but at the same time most  pepole are so stuck on color its so easy to do  and like i said in the past its never this many comments when some one molest a little kid  and you know the color of the pepole doing that  im far from a racistbbut im telling the facts just look at register archives
