Relatives arrested after teen sentenced for rape

Posted: Updated: Nov 28, 2012 07:35 PM

Emotions boil over outside the Lucas County Courthouse after a teen is sentenced to 21 years for rape. 13abc's cameras were rolling as sheriff deputies and Toledo police rush to the scene.

We were there covering a different court case when suddenly we heard people yelling and swearing just inside the building.  Then the chaos spilled outside.

Six people were arrested outside the Lucas County Courthouse after they ignored court security  orders to leave. Police slapped handcuffs on this man after he allegedly threatened to blow up the courthouse. Officers came running and police rushed to the scene with lights and sirens.

It all started after a judge sentenced 16-year-old Anthony Mitchell to 21 years in prison for rape.
Police say Mitchell and his buddy knocked on a woman's door on Ryan road pretending to sell candles. Detectives say they asked to use the homeowner's restroom, but sexually assaulted her. Mitchell's family didn't like the sentence.

"There was loud disturbance from the defendants family there were some outbursts inside the courtroom they were escorted outside the courtroom," said Toledo Police Sgt. Joe Heffernan.
     
It appeared that some members of the family refused to leave the property.

One relative allegedly threw an officers keys in the bushes after the detective dropped them. Investigators say one of the suspects jumped on the back of a  female detective and assaulted her.

"Is that when the call came over the radio saying there was an officer down officer down. She came over the radio and said she need help now," said Sgt. Heffernan.

According a police report officers charged the six people arrested with aggravated rioting.
