CANTON, OH (WKOW) -- Police say an Ohio man tattooed the letter "A" on the rear end of a 1-year-old girl visiting his home.

23-year-old Lee Deitrick of Louisville was arraigned Wednesday on a felony child endangering charge.

Authorities say there's no evidence the toddler's mother permitted the November tattooing. It's not clear what the letter "A" signifies.

Deitrick's grandmother calls the tattoo "a wee-little hairline" and says there's hardly anything left of it.

Louisville Police Chief Andrew Turowski says the tattoo is smaller than a dime.

A message seeking comment was left at the office of Deitrick's attorney after the arraignment.

Bond was set at $250,000. If convicted, Deitrick could face up to five years in prison.
