Six Sandusky teens are facing aggravated rioting charges after a Sandusky police detective identified them in a YouTube video of a Decatur Street fight.

A 17-year-old LaSalle Street boy, 14-year-old Decatur Street boy, 14-yearold Tyler Street boy, 15-yearold Dixon Drive boy, 14-year-old West Adams Street boy and 19-year-old McDonough Street man Jarvarius Glenn were each charged for their alleged involvement in the fight.

Sandusky police responded to the area on the evening of April 5, after a resident reported a group of teens getting ready to fight, according to a police report.

When officers arrived, numerous people were leaving the area.

One boy said members of a local gang tried to fight him, and though he denied being a member of a rival gang, another officer identified the boy as a leader of the latter group, the report said.    Officers left the area and were finished with the complaint. Later that day, however, someone uploaded a video of the fight to YouTube.

Sandusky police Detective Ken Nixon discovered the video earlier this week and immediately recognized some of the boys from previous cases, Detective Jon Huffman said.

The teens are seen yelling and enticing each other to fight outside a Decatur Street home. One boy was armed with a walking cane, while another grabbed a “for sale” sign to use in the scuffle. At one point, a girl is seen tossing two large sticks into the fray so other boys could use them as weapons, Huffman said.

Nixon identified all the people who were seen actively fighting in the video, then conferred with prosecutors on charges.

The Adams and Decatur street boys were arrested Wednesday and officers issued warrants for the rest.

We`ve come along way since the Caveman,does anyone know who really is the blame.God help us,for we can not help ourselves.

Cavemen had more sense than most these idiots we read about day in and day out. Going through life being a thug is so rewarding LOL. But as we know its always someone else's fault.

ladydye_5

I agree Cavemen fought for survival. These thugs fight because they "THINK" it is cool. They think they are achieving "street cred". These little punks would NOT know respect if it walked up and hit them!

Thugs? That's a little harsh isn't it? This was a fight? A couple kids playing star wars with sticks as their swords?

I can see why someone had a for sale sign in their yard....

I know. Sandusky is over 70% rental properties which is part of the problem. The recession hit and took jobs and people with it and now with the gang problem homeowners do not want to live in Sandusky. It is a problem because homeowners bring pride and ownership into Sandusky, not just of property but for the city and it's residents. Right now it seems that the people don't care about the city or it's citizens.

Obama phone?

deertracker

No such thing!

Dwight - an "obama phone" is one you get from the government. My daughter has one. It has very limited capabilities & time on it, but if you can't afford a phone & are looking for work, you can get one for that.

deertracker

What does that have to do with the President? Absolutely NOTHING!

Hahaha what morons.

Hey Reverend Darden, these guys were only arrested because of their skin color, right?

Sandtown, if you're going to correct others, make sure that your corrections are correct. Your sentence should read 'Put down the pipe and get AN education.'

Bottom Line

I just think it's great they can say the N word literally 100 times and that's okay. Because as always if it's blacks going after other blacks (which objective evidence shows it usually is) the black community is fine with it. But the rare times it's involving another race then black people will come out to protest and stir the race pot.

santown419

Why do you want to use the n word? You are the one who is the trying to stir the race pot. And I saw white guys here to.

Bottom Line

Never said I did you racist pile of garbage. My point (obviously) is that a black can get away with that. Another race can't.

DGMutley

Tsk, tsk. Why does that bother you?

deertracker

Here we go about the n word. Big deal. Remove the negativity from the word and it is just a word. If you want to use the n word Bottom Line go ahead and use it. Just be ready to deal with the consequences.

Younger people have put a whole new spin on the word. I hear white people using it talking to each other. Sticks and stones??????????

Bottom Line

Please show me where I said or implied I wanted to use the N word. I don't think saying that word is right. Ever. And that's the difference between you and I. I'm consistent. You want to make different rules for different people.

deertracker

No, I want to make my own rules. I don't need society telling me what I should be offended by. I almost never use the word and really never have but if I choose to it would not be to degrade anyone! Those that invented the word seem to want to dictate who uses it and how. It doesn't work that way.

Dr. Information

Shut up knee grow.

deertracker

Am I supposed to be offended yt?

DGMutley

Dr. Information can't help himself.
