Jason Dendy, 32, was listed in critical condition Monday at Cleveland MetroHeath Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The two men accused of attacking him — Dustin Ramsey, 31, of Sandusky, and Joseph Moffitt, 31, of Monroeville — remain in the Erie County jail on charges of complicity to felonious assault.

Ramsey’s bond is about $24,000, while Moffitt’s is about $22,000.

Detectives said they’re still trying to determine which man actually stabbed Dendy.

The incident happened at about 1:30 a.m. at Columbus Avenue and Water Street. Dendy suffered four wounds, including a slash on his left side, from his armpit to his rib cage, police said. He was taken by ambulance to Firelands Regional Medical Center, then flown by medical helicopter to the Cleveland hospital.

Officers arrested Ramsey and Moffitt on the spot when bystanders pointed them out.

In addition to collecting Dendy’s bloodied shirts from the street as evidence, police also found two pocket knives discarded in the area, both more than 3 inches long, Sandusky police Detective Dana Newell said.

Newell would not say if the knives had blood on them, although both were sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for forensic testing.

Newell said he plans to interview both suspects this week.

The bystanders were the friends that jumped Dustin and Joe. They lost a fight and called the cops to snitch. No mention of 5 on 2 in this article. No mention that this was SELF DEFENSE. 5 Men attacked Dustin and Joe. Free the Sandusky 2!

bnjjad

Called the cops to snitch becuase they "lost" when one is bleeding after being stabbed? That's a new one.

How about we keep the "sandusky 2" (one is not from Sandusky either) locked up until the investigation is complete and facts are presented.

When 5 people are attacking 1, a weapon if used by the defending party is Self Defense. Courts have ruled in the past that when 2 people are assaulting 1 victim, or 5 assaulting 2 as in this case. The smaller group is always justified in a case of self defense. I have a feeling that 2 innocent men will go free, while 5 hoodrats stories will fall apart and be arrested for making Fictitious Statements to the Police, Filing a False Report, Assault, Menacing, ect.... They will eventually snitch on each other. Then Dustin and Joe will be exonerated by a jury of their peers.

yea right

wrong answer sandtown wannabe get your facts st8

Really? I am sure they were just drinking and minding their own business...I have had it with people who don't learn to behave and flow with the rest of society after one maybe a second incident. I am supposed to feel bad for them? NOT HAPPENING!!! I am already probably helping pay for their kids and baby mommas. P.S. Nice neck tats I am sure that is a step in the right direction!

Who are you?One of the ghetto swine that was making false statements to the Police? Trying to discredit the people your friends were assaulting? Yeah I am sure you have some traffic tickets too. Want someone to print your name and info?

Everyone is fam...

Their records are public and there is much more than minor traffic tickets listed. Disorderly conduct, felonious assault, drug abuse, just to name a few. And before you get all in a tizzy, I don't know anyone involved. Just pointing out the obvious since you missed it.

SanduskySlayer's picture
SanduskySlayer

Yeah Felonious Assault from this most latest arrest which is based upon hearsay from less than reputable intoxicated witness's. Also I see you are posting from multiple fake profiles, and trying to sway opinion. IP address's are traceable. I am sure the Sandusky PD is already looking at these threads and the people posting.

bnjjad

I am sure that Sandusky PD is not trying to use comments from this blog as verifiable information, nor are they tracking IP addresses (and if they are, good luck trying to find me). If they are, clearly you are the only one here with any information regarding this to look into. I have no facts from this case other then what I have seen or heard from the newspaper or other sources.

Good for you to stick up for your friends, but quite frankly the investigation needs to be completed before they let people who have already stabbed someone out of jail. We will see what happens, if they are innocent then let them continue on and Justice should be served where it is due.

Note: If it was truly self defense, then why didn't they call the cops themselves after the stabbing? Judging by your comments, the instigators are the ones who called them because they "lost" and had to snitch.

Everyone is fam...

You are as stupid as the two chuckle heads in this article. This is my ONLY profile and I could give two flying craps about anyone's opinion let alone care enough to attempt to sway them. So if the Sandusky pd would like to trace my IP address (lol), they are more than welcome. All I can offer to them is pointing out the obvious...and my opinion that you are certifiably a whack job.

mimi's word

My username is not multiple I have had problems logging in and had to create a new one because of technical problems. I am not swaying any opinion. Consistent law breakers are just fools. I don't care what the Sandusky PD looks into on here. I do not patronize Sandusky drinking establishments because of reckless behavior I do not condone or want to be a part of. I made a mistake by breaking the law when I was younger. I also know that it took ONLY ONE time to figure out that I did not want to live aa life like that and straightened up. This does not seem to be the case here. I doubt they will ever be productive members of society.

yea right

it was just big mouth drunk guys that dont know when to shut up.. one guy attacked them..getting 2 on 1 ..Jason stepped in to help pull them off of his buddy..then one of them pulled out his hunting knife and stabbed Jason..

after all they dont have much so they carry big knives to make up for what they dont have..same to all the guys with big trucks..hahaha

Where are your 3 friends that ran off? Why not tell the cops about the people that were assaulting them? Oh wait because then you wouldn't get to lie to make the victims appear to be the agitators. Your friends caused this, and a jury will exonerate them.

Mommabear713

Are you part of the "peaceful street projects"?

If so it shows. Keep on spouting at the mouth. The fact is these two Lovely, upstanding citizens are surely innocent. *insert large amount of sarcasm with eyeroll here*

Your buddies will not be exonerated. If it was self defense, a knife should not have been used. Now these two idiots will not only be sitting behind bars, but their kids wil suffer the fact that "dad is stupid". At least it seems as the mother (s) has/have their stuff together. Good for them!

Stop It

Another who HAS to explain sarcasm with typing 'eyerolls?'

"*insert large amount of sarcasm with eyeroll here*"

If it isn't evident, there is no need to explain.

bnjjad

Well, considering how dense some of these people are on here, it is sometimes required.

Stop It

That flew right over your head, bnjjad...

Jeanentte, why hide behind a fake profile? We know you instigated your friends into assaulting Dustin and Joe. The Sandusky Police Know too. They will be exonerated, Self Defense against a couple of grimy (^&%$#$. Regardless of where Jason is, his kids suffer from bad parenting and embarressing antics of the Jerrry Springer show. He should have been home with his family instead of being at the bar.

Mommabear713

Are you referring to me as "Jeanentte"? Because if so, you are SADLY mistaken. My name is no where close to that name. I don't know anyone involved.

Tmarie86

In response to Mimis assumptions- I do not feel bad for them either- HOWEVER...don't get it twisted you don't pay for neither of his kids or baby mommas NOTHING! Just because he makes stupid decisions doesn't mean his babymommas don't have our shyt together! N joe does pay his child support faithfully- I do not agree with his decisions and it is very embarrassing to his children- I am very sorry to the victim & his family for what they are going through- but don't sit on here and try to act like you pay for me and my daughters shyt bc I am a college graduate, have great job, all my own shyt and support my kid without any assistance!!!!!!

whattheBucks

Easy tina marie, you Cant look at this guys track record, and then you talk about him making stupid decisions, and then tell us he has his shyt together

I am so glad he is spreading his dna all over with several of you out there! Also extremely happy to see you are using your state paid education to show of all the english classes Ohio citizens paid for. I am glad it was money well spent(SIGH)!

Tmarie86

More like I racked up 40gs in student loans, nothing was free! .. once again u don't pay for me n I don't feel the need to be professional when you are on here making assumptions about me and my child! Why can't u stupid fuks just keep the convo about the people in the article...no ur so fukin bored u have to make assumptions and talk crap about innocent people!

Tmarie86

FYI he only has two children... n you should feel like a worthless Piece of Shyt for talking about them! Sick of people judging over other peoples actions!

mimi's word

Really what should I judge you on? So I should only see the good actions and judge you on those and not the bad actions. You certainy make no sense! And I do feel bad for the children. I feel bad that their mother coudn't find a better father! I am sick of hearing what a loser your "baby daddy" is! YOU choose him...wasn't a crap shoot and and the baby came with a previous owner tag...Grow up and realize you put yourself in this situation-no one else!

Krissy3

Mimi, why are you judging her at all? She's not the one with the mugshot in the paper. Maybe they were together before he started getting into trouble... She said she takes care of her daughter without assistance so what "situation" are you referring to? You're the one who came on this post on your high horse running your mouth about his children's mothers, so when she gets on and explains that she isn't a part of his life anymore and she isn't a ghetto welfare skank, you have to keep going on about it? Why don't YOU grow up and find something better to do than show off your copy/paste skills on a blog and judge people you don't know?
