A 20-year-old man who police say put a tattoo on the rear end of a 1-year-old girl is facing a felony child endangering charge. Lee. M. Deitrick is accused of applying the tattoo in early November while the child was visiting his home at 1317 W. Main St.
The tattoo, which is the letter “A,” could not be removed, according to a complaint police filed with Canton Municipal Court. The child was brought to the home by a female relative, according to Police Chief Andrew Turowski. Deitrick is not the girl’s father, the chief said.
