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. 

Police had been looking for Cherry since Nov. 21 when he allegedly stabbed a boy in the back. He has been booked into the Erie County Jail on $22,000 bond.

(Editor's note: A pervious version of this story listed an incorrect date of the initial stabbing incident. It has been corrected.)

just turn him loose and get it over with. We know the system isn't going to do anything to him. More importantly HE knows the system won't do anything to him. Say your sorry and don't ever do that again! Your reparations, handouts, and entitlements will be in the mail. Go forth and father 14 children with 14 different mothers.


WAY TO GO SPD! Thank You!!!! Keep up the good work and get all of these punks off the streets! I saw you were all pretty busy on Reese Street again~ All I can figure is they all have a brain the size of a pea~ They just cannot figure out how to act human, completely clueless.


Good going SPD and Justice...gotcha!


Editor's note: "pervious" ....really?


how sad


Why is most of the crime in Sandusky done by one group of individuals. Please don't say this is a racist comment when it's true.


Tell me this...why do you people always focus on race?? There are three racist comments on this article but the racist Register admin...have seemed to overlook or let them remain. You people wonder why your meat out here in the world....


"You people"? Get Real...
