‘Knockout game’ suspect bonds out of jail

3/1/2014

A Glynn County magistrate judge granted bond Friday to one of four men connected to an alleged “knockout game” assault.

Jervon Abdullah Sanderson, 18, of Glynn County, was released from the Glynn County Detention Center Friday on $2,500 bond plus court costs.

Glynn County police charged Sanderson and three other men Thursday with cruelty to children in the first degree after video surveillance inside Walmart on the Altama Connector showed one of them sucker punching an unsuspecting 16-year-old boy, Alex Thomas, the son of Glynn County Fire Chief Al Thomas.

Barton denied bond to Kaleb Scott Dirting, 18, of Glynn County. Stewart, who requested his bond be set at $3,500, said Dirting was the one who put Brandon Mikell Allen Jr., 18, of Brunswick, up to punching the unsuspecting juvenile. Allen is the one who allegedly threw the punch.

Ramone Rishaun Roberson, 19, of Glynn County, is also charged in the attack.

The teenage victim suffered swelling around the face but was not actually knocked out in what police say was the first incidence of the “knockout game” in Glynn County.

The purpose of the “game” is to randomly sucker-punch strangers with the goal of knocking them unconscious with a single blow. Incidents elsewhere around the nation have prompted states to change their laws to make what otherwise could be treated as a misdemeanor battery offense a felony.

In the Glynn County case, because the victim was a juvenile, the alleged offenders are facing cruelty to children in the first degree, a felony charge that carries a potential maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

KNOCKOUT GAME: Dangerous Attacks In Ames

Posted on: 8:55 pm, February 24, 2014, by Aaron Brilbeck, updated on: 10:13pm, February 24, 2014

Police in Ames are investigating what could be a case of the knockout game.

The knockout game is where someone hits an unsuspecting victim without provocation, trying to knock that person out with one punch. Generally its associated with big cities like New York and Philadelphia. Now, it could be happening in Ames.

On three separate occasions on February 16th, students tell police they were approached by a black man with dreadlocks who hit them for no apparent reason. The suspect then took off in a dark colored car with at least one other person inside.

Nathan Bond, a student at ISU, had to have his jaw wired shut because it was broken in the attack.

This car pulled up and didnt think nothing of it and this guy jumps out with a smile on his face and Im like, oh you know, whats going on? Bond recalls. Next thing I know Im on the ground picking myself up, just full of blood. I look and I see the car and by the time Im standing up hes in the car and driving.

Ames police say this sure looks like a case of the knockout game.

You know, weve seen the videos weve heard of it, this would be kind of similar to those kinds of incidents, says Commander Geoff Huff with the Ames Police Department. You know it really is a victim that didnt see it coming and obviously didnt deserve it.

Police are recommending students walk in groups and in well lit areas until the suspect is caught.
