Ohio Officer Allegedly Abused Children With Taser-Like Weapon

A part-time police officer has reportedly been charged for allegedly abusing his girlfriend's young children with a Taser-like weapon.

Kevin McCann, 47, of Lawrence Township, Ohio, has been charged with two counts of felonious assault and two counts of felony child endangering. McCann allegedly used a Taser-like weapon this on Christina Robinson's 3-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son, the Canton Repository reports.

Authorities do not believe McCann shocked the children and they do not believe the weapon he allegedly used in this incident was given to him as part of his official duties, according to the newspaper.

Robinson, 22, also of Lawrence Township, is charged with four counts of felony child endangering.

Both suspects were arraigned Wednesday and denied all charges. They remain in the Stark County Jail with bond set at $500,000.

The two children in question and a younger sibling have been placed with a relative with supervision provided by the Stark County Department of Job and Family Services, the newspaper reports.
