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.



Thank you Krissy- I don't know if you know me, but I'am not responding to her anymore! :)


Good, there's no reason to argue with ignorance.If she can't figure out a 31 year old is responsible for his own decisions, not everyone else in his life, I feel sorry for her. Everyone who matters knows the situation and what is understood doesn't need to be explained.

Completely agree! Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.


86, i I have no idea who you are, whether you had a good upbringing or a bad one, what color you are, what religion you are, or anything else,but just by reading your comments you sound like one of the most ghetto people I have ever read on here. you by no means come across as a college educated person who has her shyt together with a good job who supports herself.


I think it's pretty childish to get on here and judge everyone who has been a part of his past because of his current situation. Tmarie, you don't have to defend yourself or your daughter to these people.


Lmao, Tmarie86..... Making mistakes like this and at his age DOES mean he doesn't have his "shyt" together!!!!


ohhh hood rats. how amusing! please, continue!

I said WE AS IN ME N HIS SONS MOM GOT OUR SHYT TOGETHER N MIMI DONT PAY FOR ME OR MY KID..I DO!! y'all can sit here n bash him all day n all night idgaf..but no one needs to be judging me n my daughter over his actions!

Your points concerning making assumptions about your child and you are valid. However, your grammar skills don't seem to be at the collegiate level.

Neck Tats = One way ticket to working low paying jobs. Fact.


Once again...that's him, not me! Just because I have a child by him doesn't mean I live off welfare and have a low paying for people to make assumptions about me based off his appearance and actions is ridiculous! I appoplogize I didn't know I was submitting a college essay to some stupid priks who have nothing better to so than point out every flaw they see! Lol I guess that's all u guys got on me! This will be my last post, as I don't participate in sandusky register comments..I created a user name to clear up mimis assumptions! You guys have fun!!
