Woman wields shoebox, lands felony charge

“The next time I see you in public — not here, not now, but the next time — I’m going to beat your (expletive),”

A Sandusky woman was indicted on a felony charge this week for an October incident in which she hit a woman over the head with a shoebox.

Brittany Rogers, 24, of the 100 block of W. Shoreway Drive, was indicted on a felony retaliation charge. She was also arrested for disorderly conduct the day the incident occurred and for assault a few days later.

In early October, Rogers encountered her ex-niece inside Walmart in Perkins Township. The niece was previously involved in a criminal case involving Rogers’ stepbrother, according to a Perkins police report, and Rogers called her a liar inside the store.

“The next time I see you in public — not here, not now, but the next time — I’m going to beat your (expletive),” Rogers allegedly told the woman.

When the woman turned to walk away, Rogers grabbed a shoebox and struck her over the head, the report said.

A Walmart employee later told police it was “a good hit,” the report said.

The woman’s friend also said Rogers mentioned she was going to get the woman back for “what she did to her stepbrother” according to the report.

Because the woman was a witness in a criminal case against Rogers’ stepbrother, the assault warranted a third-degree felony charge.

This week, an Erie County grand jury opted to reaffirm that charge.

How can one have an ex-niece? Was it a niece by marriage? Or just her brother is the ex-babydaddy?

It was her step brother's (step) daughter. wife got smart and dropped Paul! Now she is a ex step niece.

Sounds like the trash that goes to Wal-Mart. I pay a little more and shop at Target. Wal-Mart is a cesspool and I refuse to expose my children to that environment .

now now, not every Walmart is a cesspool. I don't like the one in Sandusky that much but the PC one is okay and Fremont is not too bad although they both can be crowded at times (tourists and such!) but not everyone that shops at Walmart is trash. there is trash everywhere and I'm sure some of them go to Target also. it's not the store, it's the people and there are crappy people with money too.

The one in PC is nice for obvious reasons.

FlyBoy86

What reasons are those? Enlighten me.

BabyMomma

It's newer. It has less traffic. Way nicer staff. It's way cleaner.

I will not go to the one in Sandusky either. We watched a fight in the parking lot one afternoon also. Talking about paying child support, baby daddies and her ABORTIONS. Talk about keeping it classy. On another occasion there was a confrontation just as you walk in just past getting your cart. 2 women yelling and fighting. I agree, my children are 16, but still do not need to subject the family to that kind of nonsense. Wasn't it just last week there were TWO shoplifting incidents with the gentlemen running from the store, one to the gas station across the road, one running back and forth across 250? Not exactly somewhere I feel the need to drive to shop. Luckily I live out of the area so I have other options if I NEED a Walmart.

Screw Walmart

Common Sense

How did this become an article in which to blame Wal-Mart for the people who shop there? There are more "strange incidents" due to the volume of shoppers, not because of the store itself.

Brittany needs to understand that her stepbrother (Pablo) pleaded guilty! He is a creep! Who pleads and takes 30 years for child sex abuse unless you are guilty! Brittany needs to find a job and get a life! Girl is nothing but drama!
