5 arrested, 3 more sought for alleged roles in riot


Five people were taken to jail and arrest warrants were issued for three more after a large fight with knives, golf clubs, bricks, and bottles broke out in Toledo’s Old South End early Friday.

Arrested at the scene were Rochelle Bondie, 37; Angelic Fowler, 18; Isaac Pittard, 25; Richard Pittard, 39, all of of 515 Western Ave.; and Sean Robinson, 26, of 3120 Enright St.

Warrants were issued for Nicole Shagan, 40, of 409 South Gate Circle; Annette Downs, 53, of the Western address; and Steffany Shagan, 21, of 750 Prouty Ave.

Police on routine patrol reported they had just turned onto the 700 block of Prouty at about 12:30 a.m., and saw Keaira Shoemaker, 17, running down the street, screaming, and bleeding from an ear.

Police found a crowd of people in the street for a fight — one that started because of an issue between two 17-year-old girls, police said.

It’s not clear who did what to whom. The Shoemaker youth was hit with a bottle, police said, and was treated for her injuries. There were no other injuries reported.

The arrested suspects were arraigned Friday in Toledo Municipal Court. All pleaded not guilty to a single charge each of rioting. Ms. Bondie and Ms. Fowler were released from the Lucas County jail on their own recognizance.

Isaac Pittard’s bond was set at $15,000, which he later posted; bond for Richard Pittard was set at $7,500. He also posted bond in the full amount.

Bond for Sean Robinson was set at $5,000. He remained in the jail late Friday.
