Sandusky man arrested for disrobing sleeping woman

Police on Tuesday tracked down a Sandusky man who allegedly snuck into a woman’s Lawrence Street home and pulled her pants off while she slept.

Juliun Clinton, 29, was charged with burglary, sexual imposition and obstructing official business. Police also served him two bench warrants.

On Sept. 16, the victim, 25, was sleeping on her couch when Clinton allegedly broke into the home, a Sandusky police report said.

“While she was sleeping, she felt her pants being pulled down, however, she thought (she) stated she thought she was in a dream,” the report said. “At that point, (the victim) awoke and realized her pajama pants were in fact being pulled down and felt a hand on the outside of her naked thigh.”

The woman jolted awake and saw Clinton standing over her, the report said.  

When she screamed, Clinton jumped over the couch and bolted out of the house, the report said.

Police showed up at about 2 a.m. and found pry marks on two doors. A suspect was nowhere to be found.

A similar incident happened about two weeks prior. On Sept. 2, a victim awoke to find Clinton allegedly standing over her. Clinton told the victim he’d cut off his court-ordered ankle monitor and fled his grandmother’s house, the report said.

Clinton allegedly told the woman he planned to kill himself, but he then ran out of the house.

When the home was burglarized again Tuesday, police drove to Clinton’s grandmother’s home in the 1300 block of Farwell St. The door opened as officers walked up to the house, but someone quickly shut it.

Moments later, officers spotted Clinton dashing for the woods behind the home, a police report said.  

They arrested him at gunpoint. Late Wednesday, he was in the Erie County jail on $24,850 bond.

We all wonder why residents are leaving Sandusky.


I grew up in the Sandusky area 25 years ago, and was forced to move due to my family relocating. It had always been my dream to return. 4 months ago, I made it happen and was overjoyed to be moving cross-country, back to Sandusky/Ohio.
One week from today, I'm picking up a moving van and making the 600 mile trip back to the other state I came from. I can't stand what this town/area has become. Full of crime, violence and people who seem miserable to even be alive. My grandparents lived their entire lives here. My grandfather worked on the coal docks until the day he died. They would turn over in their graves to see all that has gone on. I'm afraid to live here. It makes me so, so, so sad to say that I can't get out of here soon enough.

Good comment, sorry to hear about the move. I live in Perkins but work downtown Sandusky. It is to bad what a minority of idiots that will never amount to anything can do to a city of this size. A lot of people are putting money into the downtown area to revive it, but as long as the crime, escpecially the shootings continue, it will be difficult to revitalize downtown. I am a firm advocate of a bigger jail so that we can adequately house these criminals and they can be given appropriate sentences and actually serve the full time. Good luck to you sir/madam


Thank you Brick Hamland. And for the record, I’m a (single) “Madam” and that seemed to compound my problems in the area as well. I actually fear for the safety of myself and my young teen-age daughter. I consider myself to be a somewhat educated, well mannered, conscientious individual. I found employment within 2 weeks of moving here and I looked forward to becoming an active community member in Sandusky. However, I wasn’t even able to find a permanent place to live where I/we felt safe. The fact that I also have 2 incredibly small dogs (4 lbs. each) also played into it. No one would rent to me. Honestly, half the places that I looked at, I wouldn’t even ALLOW my dogs to live in, let alone my child. I sent my daughter to Huron school, hearing that they had high academic test scores (she’s an “A” Honor Roll student), only to have her bullied and berated to the point that there were days she refused to go to school. My point being, there are so many issues (crime, education, livable housing, lack of community solidarity/interest) that Sandusky is no longer a safe place. Ban together people. Start neighborhood watches, become involved, rally the local law enforcement. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. I guess the final straw for me was when I asked an individual from law enforcement what could be done to make Sandusky a better place, and his reply was, “Is a B-52 bomber loaded to the gills an option?”, I knew I was way out of my league.

One last thing…when a newcomer arrives, don’t look at that person as an “outsider”…look at that person as having the potential to help you better your community.


Wow....sorry to hear that NOTFORLONG. We need all of the decent people we can get. But, I can't blame you. I've lived here all of my life, never left and it makes me sick to my stomach so I know EXACTLY what you mean. Good luck and drive safe....lastly.....pray for us here ok? ; )


Wonder if he is related to that Piece of crap that is currently in jail for murdering that woman and raping and murdering her two kids?


It kind of looks like him.

Whiskey Tango F...

It's a shame she didn't have a gun. Could have saved alot of time, agony, and tax payer's money. The second amendment is becoming more of a necessity than a right every day. Like the bumper sticker says... don't dial 911, use 357


~"he cut off his ankle monitor" >»2 WEEKS PRIOR«!
...and he still gets bail bond $.... REALLY?

~"dashing for the woods behind the home" On Farwell St....'woods' REALLY??


Woods????? Weeds maybe?


Yeah, no kiddin', Edge. I was of the understanding that those monitors were tamper proof?


You can't turn them off, nor can you remove them without the proper tool/key. But you can cut them off.


Keep this piece of crap behind bars! It's only a matter of time before he rapes and kills!



Left Sandtown

It`s time people- Work Camp,If your F-ing jails are full,put your tax dollars to work,and clean your town up.They will get the message!God Bless!


agree! I hate the fact that people are leaving town (and the area) because we have so many low-lifes. However, I also have to say that if we stopped giving everyone everything they need, they might turn back to the good old days where they knew that if they wanted to eat, they worked. AND if they couldn't work, then family took care of them. There has always been men (and women) like this guy, but usually the brothers of the victim took care of the justice.

Whiskey Tango F...

the brothers would get a harder sentence than the criminal. Especially if they have a job and money for fines. If we can't provide a jail then let the private jails come in. Chain gangs are effective especially in winter. No more free meals and housing.

here in ohio

Sand-town has turned into Losser-town, glade I dont live in town anymore!


don't dial 911, dial in your scope......


yeah boy!


Some of you are quite comical.. Everytime a crime is committed you bash Sandusky as if it is the only city with crime. Get real people. Crime is everywhere. This is not Mayberry and who are all these people that are running from crime and where are they going? Grandmasgirl, your post is a ridiculous rant. Chain gangs? Really? Try living in the 21st century. Even they had to eat and sleep. Newsflash: Sandusky is not EXEMPT from crime. It's LOSER not Losser! Glade is an air freshener!


It wasn't my intention to imply that Sandusky is the only city with crime. I was more so speaking in regards to the amount of violent crime, that occurs in Sandusky, on a semi-frequent basis. I'm also happy to tell you that I am "running" to Minnesota. The town that I will be returning to is progressive, ever-expanding (bringing in new businesses) and well BELOW the national average of crime. It's population is also 10,000 greater than Sandusky. I had come back to Sandusky because of Lake Erie and my fond memories of the area. I also wanted to escape the harsh winters of Minnesota. That being said, after being here, I guess I'll just buy some heavier mittens and earmuffs.


Start handing out tougher sentences and maybe these thugs will stop enjoying going to jail for their 3 hots and a cot then out by Sunday!


Another Clinton that tried to sexually abuse somone...what is wrong with that family


A long line of male rapists in that family, including the old ones. Its a vicious cycle.


I agree with deertracker. Sandusky DOES have a crime problem; unfortunately, so does almost everywhere else. What needs to be addressed is prevention and punishment, and that's what most bleeding hearts seem disinclined to do.

You don't kill or assault people because you're poor. You don't steal because you're uneducated. You do these things because you're lazy and irresponsible (at best). Stop the handouts, even in jail. Three hots and a cot? Not without work detail, buddy! Fill in potholes. Dig gardens. Pick up trash. Scrub toilets. If you're not entitled to my stuff for free, why are you entitled to my tax dollar-paid food and shelter for free?

Without real and meaningful consequences, the crime here — and everywhere else — will just continue. For example, why on earth was a guy who took off his electronic monitor TWO WEEKS AGO still out and about? What's it going to take, somebody else being murdered in their own home? Some thug thief being shot to death in somebody's living room? Come on!


okay. loser thas one s and glad has no e. things all over are not how they 'used to be'. there are no jobs and some people won't work, can't work, can't get hired, need psychological help. upbringing may have something to do with some people's dysfunctions, but not all. there are weirdos, psychos, mentally ill and criminals all over. and I suppose one day they will be putting people out of their misery because jails are too full. or you're too old or not contributing to society in any meaningful way. would you like that?

When is the city commission going to take a stand on the drugs and crime? Last year several of the candidates running made this a promise. I recall voting in favor of those candidates.

Mr Unassumer,
What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.


In all reality "I suppose one day they will be putting people out of their misery because jails are too full. or you're too old or not contributing to society in any meaningful way." Is a progressive idea, We elect progressives to office this is where it will end. It has happened before, Those who do not learn from history will relive it.
George Bernard Shaw
"You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you cant justify your existence, if youre not pulling your weight in the social boat, if youre not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it cant be of very much use to yourself."

Whiskey Tango F...

why randy, are you suggesting that the elected officials are not issuing a punishment that fits each crime? These people are geniuses, just ask them. Isn't it ironic that when people contribute to society and don't sell drugs for a living we don't seem to have all of these issues. If you or I were passed out in the taco bell drive through I'm sure the same officers would have taken us home safely without a ticket... Afterall these are the people who help us with right and wrong.

That is actually a pretty good idea. What a great day that would be. National Debt would be wiped out if they implimented this kind of system.

Truth Be Told....

LOL!! LOVE IT! Gotta love Mr Sandler. Highfive to you Whiskey! :)


Yes he is related to curtis clinton first cousins.


I'll donate 3 bullets. One for this Clinton, 2 for Curtis.

ewww chee mama, time for a pajama party

Ellis dee

Sleep creep


Another brain surgeon from Sandumpy. When are the judges and cops going to clean up this mess? Who would want to move their plant or company here with all the scumbags and thugs running around?? What has happened to this city borders on criminal neglect, by the city commission, city manager, police department and most of all the courts. Look at this clown's rap sheet and you tell me why he is not in prison, not jail, prison??


This is just too CREEPY!» 1 of us, in our home, sound asleep, and awakened by this CREEP!
I just can't wrap my brain around this despicable crime. wtf »Lock 'n Load.


This does give S town another problem. The mom & kids. The murdered cop. Yes crime happens everywhere but in Sandusky it seems out of proportion. We in America need the liquidation of ALL upper tier criminals.

Mr. D

Out of curiosity, how many of you who criticize the cops and courts of not doing their duty, how many of you go out of your way to get out of jury duty? Just wondering!!!


sickening!!! if he ends back on the street,we as a society are once again failed...lets just lock up our daughters children and wives...the law isn't protecting them enough!!!

Don S

Put this sicko in jail. There he will find people that will like removing his pants !!!!!!!

R U Kidding me

do you want me to tell you how bad it is. The town cops sit out by trader jacks trying to catch someone going five miles over the speed limit rather then patrol the bad areas. there scared better to chase a speeder they don't have to get out of there car and run

he said she said

I feel like this. If this man had come into my house, either my dog would have chewed him a new a&&hole or my glock 40 would have. Either way, he might have walked in but he'd be laying down and feet first when he went out.


Yep he is related to the man that is charged with the muder of heather Jackson and her 2 kids..he is the muders cusion..imagin that the apple dont fall to far from the tree,,


What does this mean?:

"he is the muders cusion"...Is he the "mother's cushion"?
