An Akron dad is facing criminal charges, after allegedly driving his 12-year-old son to fight a boy in his class.

Walter Ganous Sr., 39, is charged with child endangering, inciting to violence and complicity to assault.

Police say Ganous drove his son around the neighborhood on September 12 to look for a 13-year-old boy after an incident on the school's playground.

When Ganous and his son found the 13-year-old, Ganous allegedly told the two boys to start fighting and yelled at his son to keep punching during the altercation. 

The 13-year-old needed surgery after the fight.

Ganous remains out on bond until his next court appearance.
