Kristopher A. Fetterman, of 248 S. Huntington St., is charged with endangering children, domestic violence and threatening domestic violence, according to Medina police.

The first two charges are first-degree misdemeanors and threatening domestic violence is a fourth-degree misdemeanor, Medina Municipal Court records show.

Detective Amy Kerr said the incident happened before school Wednesday.

“There really was no reason given,” she said. “He was frustrated and responded highly inappropriately when he was trying to talk to the boy.”

Kerr said the boy, who was examined at a hospital, had some bruising when she interviewed him.

Fetterman was booked into the Medina County Jail and released on bond Wednesday.
