Jonteal Cherry, 18, of Sandusky, was charged with felonious assault, obstructing official business and violation of parole.
Officers posted in an unmarked car spotted Cherry walking south on Camp Street at about midnight. When they got out Cherry high-tailed it though several backyards.
He made it all the way to Carr and Tyler streets but Cherry gave up when police released Sandusky police dog Justice.
