Family Assistance Program

 

VICTORVILLE – Two days after assaulting his girlfriend and 1-year-old child a Victorville man was located and arrested, officials said. At around 3:15 p.m. on Sunday, August 7th a deputy from the Victorville station responded to the call reporting the assault of the two victims in the 15500 block of Third Street.


When deputies arrived at the home the suspect, identified as 33-year-old Kentron Laquan Dixon was not there. During an interview of the female victim, the deputy was able to determine that the victim and Dixon were involved in a verbal altercation. The woman was holding her 1-year-old son during the argument, which escalated with Dixon biting and punching the female victim, according to the release.

The child had a lump on his head, which the female victim said was from Dixon punching him and the female victim had blood on her back from being bitten by Dixon. Both mother and child were treated by AMR (American Medical Response), the female victim did not want to be transported to the hospital.

 

Through information obtained during the investigation, deputies were able to obtain a search warrant of an Apple Valley home, that belonged to a family member of Dixon’s. On Tuesday, August 9th, Dixon was arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for inflicting injury on a spouse/cohabitant and child cruelty. He is being held in lieu of $150,000 bail and is scheduled to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Thursday.

 

Dixon has a history of Domestic Violence arrests in Riverside Counties according to court records.
