CLEVELAND, Ohio - The grandson of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson was arraigned via video from the jail in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court on Monday.

Frank Q. Jackson, 22, is charged with felonious assault, abduction and failure to comply.

A not guilty plea was entered by his attorney.

He was booked into the Cuyahoga County Jail Thursday night, according to court records.

He's being held on a $25,000 bond.

Jackson is accused of attacking an 18-year-old woman in June.

The victim said he choked her, punched her and hit her with a metal truck hitch.

Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority reports city prosecutors initially did not pursue charges against the mayor’s grandson because the victim did not want to press charges.

His pretrial hearing is scheduled for September 16.
