Sandusky police ask public for info on home invader

Police are turning to the public to help identify a suspect in at least one home invasion after a rash of violent break-ins in recent months.

A woman who fell victim to one of the most recent incidents in the 1000 block of Third Street provided Sandusky police Sgt. Tracy Susanna with a very specific description.

The man allegedly punched the woman in the face when she opened her door to let her dogs out Wednesday night, robbed her, then ran.

The suspect is described as a 5-foot-9 to 6-foot black man with short hair, a dark complexion and a prominent pink scar running from the right corner of his mouth and across his chin. He was also wearing two hoop earrings in his right ear, the victim told police.

"She said due to the dark complexion, the pink (scar) really stood out," Sandusky police Sgt. Tracey Susana said.

Police can't say for sure if the Wednesday night robbery is directly connected with the violent crimes they traced to a group of 10 to 12 young men, but it's possible.

They're having trouble gaining solid evidence, however, which they need to make any arrests.

The bottom line: They need witnesses who will stand up and identify themselves and the suspects to bring a solid case.

Police have arrested one of the suspects, Takye Fenderson, 21. He was caught running from the scene of a similar robbery on Oct. 16.

"We need to band together. We can squash this mess, but we have to communicate first," Detective Dana Newell told the Register, fed up with the break-ins and turning to the public for help.

Anyone with information about the home invasions or the identity of the suspect in Wednesday's robbery can call police at 419-627-5863.

It's the time friend. Want to trap you heading out of town if you were at a bar. One way out on that road! Is it right? Who knows, bad guys do not bring in $$ they use $$.


I would solve the case if they tried knocking me out, they would be found on my front porch with a bullet in them or maybe through them, however they wont be running thats for sure.

"she opened her door to let her dogs out"

She needs new dogs! LOL, hope she is well and the bad gus choke on their pizza!


Isn't using the term "black" racial profiling?


3 blocks away from the cop shop? What? "His melanin has made his skin color dark in color and that pink scar very noticeable". Would that make it more politically correct?
