CLEVELAND — An arrest warrant has been issued for Frank Q. Jackson, the grandson of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, according to court documents.

Frank Q. Jackson was indicted by a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury on Wednesday for allegedly beating and strangling a woman at a gas station and outside a residence in June.

The city previously declined to pursue charges against him.

According to Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas records, Frank Q. Jackson has been charged with felonious assault, abduction and two counts of failure to comply.

“The Grand Jury reviewed the facts of this case and has come to this determination. The message is that it is not acceptable to violently abuse women in Cuyahoga County," said Ryan Miday, a spokesperson for the county prosecutor's office.
