Man indicted on charge of child endangerment


A Toledo man accused of slamming a toddler into the ground was indicted Thursday for endangering children.

A Lucas County grand jury indicted Walter Johnson, 32, of 1215 Peck St., after he allegedly picked up a car seat in which a 2-year-old girl was sitting unbuckled outside 2299 Kent St. on July 9 and threw it, causing the girl to fall out. Her injuries were serious enough to require hospitalization, police said.
