Victorville Man Arrested for Cruelty to His Infant Child and Criminal Threats

VICTORVILLE – A 46-year-old Victorville transient was arrested for cruelty to his 3-4-month-old baby and criminal threats.

On Thursday, September 20, 2018, at around 8:37 p.m. deputies from the Victorville station responded to the Roadway Inn for a well check on the baby. The reporting party told dispatchers that Cameron was being aggressive towards the baby and throwing the baby’s stroller. The owner of the Roadway inn told Duane Bernard Cameron, 46, to leave the property. According to Sheriff’s officials, Cameron became upset and made remarks threatening the owner’s wife.

“The baby’s condition was such that deputies believed it was not safe to leave the child in the custody of Cameron, who is the baby’s father,” said Victorville Sheriff’s Station Spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez.

The baby was taken into protective custody by Children and Family Services. Cameron was arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for Child Cruelty and Criminal threats. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
