GREEN, Ohio — A Summit County man was charged with sexually abusing a boy after the assault was captured on surveillance camera, authorities said.

Dean A. Davis, 28, of Green, is charged with gross sexual imposition, sexual imposition and endangering children for sexually assaulting a 4-year-old boy, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

Davis was being held in the Summit County Jail on a $30,000 bond.

The 4-year-old and his three siblings were turned over to the Summit County Children Services. His mother is charged with endangering children and theft of drugs. 

Authorities think his mother took medication that belonged to her four children, police said.
