A warrant has been issued for a Sandusky man who allegedly choked his 9-year-old son. Tyruss Jeter, 30, 1600 block of Campbell St., was charged with endangering children and domestic violence.

The boy’s mother picked him up after he spent Saturday with his father, who said the boy was acting up. The boy began to cry uncontrollably once he was with his mother, a Sandusky police report said.

The woman told police the boy said he had been choked and picked up by his neck, police said. Police reported they observed red marks on the side of the boy’s neck compatible with choking. The boy said he tried to call for help, but his grandmother — the suspect’s mother — did not allow him to, the report said.

The boy admitted he was acting out, but his mother said the father crossed a line, the report said. Police have not yet made contact with Jeter.

Jeter’s domestic violence charge was upgraded to a fourth-degree felony for previous domestic violence charges.
