CLEVELAND — A 29-year-old Rocky River man was arrested after he tried to shoot a Cleveland man with a bow and arrow, according to Cleveland police. Instead, the arrow hit the front door of a home and shattered the glass, which cut a child's face.

James Fumich is charged with felonious assault for the April 17 shooting incident at a Cleveland home in the 2200 block West 85th Street. He was arrested several days later after a warrant was issued for his arrest, court records show.

Fumich is accused of shooting several arrows at a 21-year-old Cleveland man in an incident that stemmed from an argument involving the man's fiancee, the reports says.

The 21-year-old man got into an argument with his fiancee after a friend found a pair of shorts inside the home that he believed belonged to Fumich.

The man texted Fumich, "I knew them was your shorts," the report says. Fumich acted like the phone didn't belong to him by saying, "This is Alicia you have the wrong number."

Police found an arrow inside the home on the kitchen floor and a second one about 30 feet away from the home in an alley, the reports says.

The child who was injured refused treatment by EMS, the report says.

Fumich was arraigned Wednesday and his case was bound over to the county. He is currently being held in Cuyahoga County Jail.
