Courtney Yancey, 23, 1100 block E. Farwell St., was charged with child endangering.

Officers went to Ontario School around 2 p.m., after school officials alerted them to the boy’s comments.

The child said Yancey hit him in the face with a belt when he got an answer wrong on his homework, the report said. After showing a social worker his bruised face, he revealed belt marks on his back and shoulder blade and a scar on his knee caused by a previous blow from the belt, the report said.

The boy repeated the same story to three school officials, the police officer and a social worker, the report said. Yancey’s brother picked the child up from school. He allegedly insisted the marks were from the boy’s brother.

Yancey also blamed the marks on the boy’s sibling when officers confronted her with the allegations, the report said.

Yancey was arrested and taken to the Erie County jail.
