CLEVELAND — The grandson of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, Frank Q. Jackson, pleaded not guilty to four felony charges during his video arraignment on Monday.

The judge set his bond at $25,000, with his pretrial hearing set for Sept. 16 at 9:00 a.m. Jackson posted 10 percent of his bond and was released Monday.

He is facing charges for felonious assault, abduction and two counts of failure to comply.

The judge ordered him to have no contact with the victim and a GPS monitor if he makes bail.

The alleged assault happened on June 10 around 7 p.m. near the corner of East 40th Street and Quincy Avenue.

A Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority police report states that Jackson was sitting inside a truck with several other individuals before the attack occurred. The victim eventually asked another female passenger to run in the store and grab something for her. After the woman exited the truck, Frank Q. Jackson—who was in the front passenger seat—turned around and punched the victim in the face and then strangled her with both hands, the police report states.
