A Norwood man who authorities said beat a 10-year-old girl with a belt was being held on $50,000 bail, charged with child endangerment.
Griztko Erickson, 38, was arrested yesterday by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and Norwood police after they learned that he hit the girl “on several areas of her body,” causing cuts and bruises, county Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon.
The 6-foot-1-inch, 225-pound Erickson, who works as a property manager for New York Presbyterian Hospital in Washington Heights, was immediately arraigned following yesterday’s arrest, Molinelli said. He remained held tonight in the Bergen County Jail.
