Santa Ana, CA (The Weekly Vice) - Joshua Allen Robey, a 24-year-old California man has been jailed after he was allegedly caught on surveillance camera attempting to kill his 2-month-old son.
According to police, Robey's girlfriend installed a hidden camera at her home in Anaheim after she became suspicious that he was cheating on her.
The camera didn't catch Robey in the midst of an affair. It recorded something far worse.
Investigators say Robey was in the home alone watching the child when he allegedly wrapped a blanket around the newborn baby's neck like a noose and then swung him around in a circle for more than a minute. He then laid the baby down and punched him in the chest several times with a closed fist.
Police say Robey then grabbed the baby by the neck with both hands and shook him violently. When the baby's cries grew louder, Robey tried to suffocate him by smothering his face with a pillow.
When the child's mother watched the video, she called police and took the child to a nearby hospital. The child's injuries were not detailed in the arrest report.
Robey was arrested at a Santa Ana motel room and booked into jail on charges of attempted murder and torture. He is being held on $1 million bond.
