A Sandusky man stormed his way into a Putnam Street home Thursday morning and pummeled a woman in the face before stealing her cash, according to Sandusky police.

Albert Rainey III, 28, was charged with aggravated burglary, robbery, tampering with evidence, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

The victim, Pamela Ray, 47, called police at about 3 a.m. and said she’d just been robbed. When police arrived she was bleeding from the face. 

She told officers it all started after a man named “Trey,” later identified as Rainey, gave her a ride home from a convenience store, a police report said. Rainey and another woman followed Ray inside, where the three talked for about an hour. 

During the conversation, Ray’s rent money — $400 — was in plain view on the table. After Rainey and the woman left, someone threw a 40-ounce beer bottle through Ray’s kitchen window, the report said. 

Rainey soon came to the door, and Ray let him in, but as soon as she turned the knob, Rainey bull-rushed her. The door smacked into Ray and put her down, the report said. 

“She stated ‘Trey’ then proceeded to strike her in the face between three and four times,” the report said. “She said after he struck her in the face he went into the kitchen, took her money and left the residence.” 

Ray refused medical treatment, and she offered to point officers to Rainey’s house. She led police to an apartment complex in the 500 block of E. Market Street, where officers found Rainey’s name on the buzzer for an apartment. Rainey’s father answered and allowed police inside, where they found Rainey.  

Rainey admitted he gave Ray a ride home, but he said he dropped her off soon after, the report said.  

Police brought him outside so Ray could have a look at him, and Ray confirmed he was the attacker.  

Police handcuffed Rainey then searched the apartment. They found $400 stuffed in an old sock at the bottom of Rainey’s laundry basket, the report said.  

Officers also found two marijuana roaches in a cigarette pack in Rainey’s jacket, along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia lying on a living room table. Rainey’s father — Albert Rainey Jr., 62 — took responsibility for items on the table so he was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. 

Rainey III remains in the Erie County jail on $55,000 bond.
