Brookfield police have filed charges against a Girard man who jumped out the window of the mobile home he was visiting April 26, causing cuts to himself and a 6-year-old boy.
Johnathan T. Ferrier, 25, was charged May 9 with assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. A warrant was issued for Ferrier’s arrest.
He was taken to Trumbull Memorial for treatment of his wounds and a mental health evaluation the day of the incident, and the boy also was taken to Trumbull Memorial, police said.
Police said Ferrier accompanied a woman who went to a home in the 1100 block of East Park Drive to get her hair done.
The woman who was with Ferrier told the resident that Ferrier was acting a little odd and asked if he could use the restroom, police said. Upon receiving permission, Ferrier “stumbled and turned around and started hitting the wall, then ran into the back bedroom and jumped onto (the boy) and jumped out the closed window,” police said.
The boy was pushed by Ferrier, which caused the boy to cut his hand on the window, police said. The boy suffered “a few severe lacerations” on his hand, police said.
When police arrived, they found a bloodied Ferrier, who said he had messed up and was off his medication, police said.
While police talked to Ferrier, he “started hopping around in the street” and ran, police said. Police chased and tackled Ferrier, who thrashed and ranted after he had been arrested, police said.
Ferrier settled down, then thrashed again, police said. He was restrained and administered a sedative, police said.
Brookfield Fire-Rescue and Vienna police assisted.
