Woman Catches Boyfriend Allegedly Abusing Their 2-Month-Old Son On Hidden Camera

SANTA ANA (KNX 1070) — Police say a 24-year-old Anaheim man is behind bars after allegedly being captured on hidden camera nearly killing his two-month-old son.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa says Joshua Robey has been charged with attempted murder, torture, child abuse and causing great bodily harm stemming from the incident.

Anaheim police Sergeant Rick Martinez says Robey’s girlfriend set up a hidden camera and caught the alleged abuse on tape.

“We observed on tape the father of the child with a blanket around the child’s neck. He picks up the baby by lifting the ends of the blanket like a noose and swinging the victim around for about a minute,” the sergeant said.

Martinez says Robey can also be seen punching the baby in the chest with a closed fist.

The baby’s mother discovered what happened the next morning when she watched the videotape, according to police.

Robey, who is being held on $1 million bail, is set to be arraigned on Nov. 9, according to the Associated Press. He faces 15 years to life in prison, if convicted.

  2. Bruce says:

    they should do the same to him as he did to helpless child.. crazy psychopath.

    1. jane donut says:

      Please, you’re insulting all of the crazy psychopaths by including him in their group.

      1. The Big Logic says:

        Does that include normal psychopaths as well?

  3. Amy Rosen Allen says:

    Jack*ss. Too bad he didn’t just cheat. Had to be lower than slime and hurt an innocent. Give that boy a noose and swing him around awhile. Did I say Jack*ss already? It’s worth repeating.

  4. CONTENT2BE says:

    I would like to do to him what he did to that baby…just five minutes alone with him please!!

    Why I don’t believe in god, Part 5,386

    1. CONTENT2BE says:

      The mother thought she was about to entrap the father. Instead, she saved her son’s life. That is why I DO believe in God.

      1. Reason says:

        ahhh that doesnt make any sense. Because a mother of a child acted to protect said child, that somehow means God exists? And what about the tons of babies that are abused and killed violently across the globe ALREADY? Linda made a good point because if God supposedly is all powerful, it makes no sense such a loving God would let this happen, or perhaps let such twisted f’d up people even live past birth, – but you, content2be arent making any sense.

    2. Ruby says:

      Neither Linda,content2be or Reason are making any sense……The Christian”God” neither causes things to happen or prevents them. He,according to the Christian Bible,gave man free will to do as he pleases. What we as humans choose to do has nothing to do with any God.

      1. JS says:

        Where in the bible does it mention free will? What if a tumor grows on your brain and it turns you into a child molester; and then they remove the tumor and you’re back to normal (this really happened)? Where was the free will to keep you from hurting others? What about thugs and sociopaths; the science isn’t in, but research suggests that violent people have brain damage – lesions on their neo-cortex. Did they choose to have brain damage? What if you’re just plain not smart enough to figure out that Jesus was real? Can someone choose that? See, it doesn’t make good sense, down at its core. No fiction ever does.

      2. Ruby says:

        What are you talking about JS? I was simply replying to Reason who said”if God supposedly is all powerful, it makes no sense such a loving God would let this happen,” God doesn’t make people do anything,he leaves it up to people to make their own choices Actually free will started will Adam and Eve,they made a free conscious choice to eat what was forbidden.I’ve no idea why you’re going on about brain tumors,that has nothing to go with free will or God…and why are you questioning my intelligence?!? I didn’t confirm or deny Jesus’ existence.If you must know,I’m Pagan,I believe in many Gods. If you have a disease that affects cognitive behaviour,then obviously your free will ,will also be affected. Although I have no idea what this has to do with any god.Either you just don’t know what free will is,or you are just very confused..I don’t know which…

    3. R F Carpenter says:

      This isn’t GOD’s fault…. This is a great example of what happens when you take GOD out of our schools and society in general

      1. peabody3000 says:

        nonsense. tragedies ALWAYS happen, with or without prayer or worhip of dieties, which goes to show its all imaginary superstition

    4. sean says:

      Nice, because not believing in God would help this kid right?

      1. peabody3000 says:

        “because not believing in God would help this kid right?”

        believing or not believing is the same difference. better to not waste time on superstitions and instead deal with the hard and cold reality going on

  6. Christina Wedzik says:

    Anybody who hurts a baby should be killed, they have no soul.

  7. HollywoodSaint says:

    so there is a GOD!…….I believe it now

  8. TREASON FOR ANY REASON says:

    IF A HISPANIC DID THIS THERE WOULD BE A BUNCH OF STUPID COMMENTS ON HERE…JUST TO SHOW U GUYS THAT EVERYBODY IS EQUALLY WORTHLESS

    1. star says:

      As a Hispanic woman, I am APPALLED by your comment. NOT ALL Hispanic women are like there. Hispanics LOVE their children and would give their world up for them. Stop bashing your own people. It only makes YOU look BAD! You’re calling yourself stupid too by saying Hispanic women are too stupid… Based on your comment you’re saying that YOU’re “popping out babies that you can’t afford, having 20 + people living in one house in order to pay the rent, have a good stereo to blast spanish music and some beer in the fridge for the guys. And then when tragic things happen (after years of it going on)…they start whining but have nobody but themselves to blame due to parental negligence.” You just called yourself a dummy. Keep it moving.

    2. anthony says:

      you are an idiot, i doubt your hispanic as well. every race has their good and bad qualities…whites, black, yellow, blue, rainbow..doesnt matter what color you are.
      your saying hispanic men abuse their children..thats funny, because i hear about other races abusing their children as well..

    3. Lori says:

      Sounds like your describing yourself and your situation. Time to grow up.

  9. Irish Cornaire says:

    Wow Linda,most impressive post,when I lived in El Monte back in the 90’s all I ever heard and saw was latinos and cholos/cholas,guess ye are not too proud of ye heritage eh?

  10. TexasForever says:

    Well what can you say….
    (1) Perhaps mom there should have wised up. Boyfriend is 24, my guess mom is 21. I guess they did not learn anything in their political correct public school.
    (2) Maybe mom should have found a decent guy to marry instead of shacking up.
    (3) This guy is going to prison but he is not going to general population so chances are he is going to make out of prison OK and young enough to reoffend.
    (4) California does have a death row but they haven’t execute anyone in decades so taxpayers of California enjoy spending your tax dollars on this piece of DNA.

    It’s good that she caught him but I have to question her judgement to leave him alone with the baby. Had he killed the baby would she have felt it was enough to just catch him?

    1. Sam says:

      What is so messed up is, what if some 4 months old infant does this to an adult, would be we still be talking about it with this much passion?

      1. Cynthia says:

        …Obviously a four month old baby wouldn’t have the power to do that to an adult..unless they’re possessed by a demon or something. This poor baby couldn’t defend himself.. that is why we are talking about it with “THIS MUCH PASSION.”

  12. MOTHER says:

    WHAT CONCERNS ME IS WHY WAS IT NECESSARY TO SECRETLY VIDEO HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT SEEMS AS IS SHE SUSPECTED SOMETHING BEFORE SHE ACTUALLY CAUGHT IT ON VIDEO. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU’RE READING PEOPLE. WHAT’S EVEN MORE DISTURBING TO ME IS WHY WOULD SHE LEAVE THE CHILD IF HER KNOWLEDGE OF OR MOTHER INTUITION TOLD HER SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT. IM A MOTHER AND IF I SUSPECT SOMETHING THERE IS NO WAY IM JUST GONNA WAIT TO CATCH YOU ON TAPE. OR MAYBE SHE WAS TRY TO CATCH HIM DOING SOMETHING ELSE.

    1. John Holmes says:

      She needed proof so she could go to the police. If she had no proof then the courts would just throw it out of court if she wanted full custody and would come after her too and kill them both.

  13. Silly Me says:

    Linda Chavez ! Shut your mouth…Pendeja !! You can’t say hispanics live like that…I am hispanic…I Live by myself…I DO NOT LIVE PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK…. !! I feel sorry for you….I think you do…cause you’re do one who keeps popping kids out and the one who keeps beer in the fridge…We are not all alike…THANK GOD ! You bring shame to us….

    1. Patricia Enciso(Patty) says:

      Thank you !!!!! Some people out there just don’t get it !!!!!

  14. Cora Mason Atkinson says:

    OMG that poor child the mother must of suspected something. Hand this fool over to lme please. Just give me 15 mintues thats all I would need.

  15. FAITH says:

    GOD DOES EXIST!

    1. peabody3000 says:

      how do you know? oh yeah.. you “just know”….. honestly thats not very convincing

  16. Patricia Enciso(Patty) says:

    What was his problem if feeling stressed out or whatever it was!!!!!….. he should of called for HELP…..@ 1855-4A-PARENT….NATIONAL PARENT HELPLINE

  17. JS says:

    So, if you embezzle rich people’s money, you get 300 years, but if you punch an infant nearly to death, you get 15. Well, I’m sorry, planet earth, but we have to kick your planet into the Sun, now. A grave stone will be placed in orbit where Earth used to be. It will read, “Fail”.

    1. Maggie Fanelli says:

      Sooooo true.

  18. Chris says:

    That punk isnt even human. Death would be light a punishment. I have a 5 month old son. I can’t even imagine how he could commit such heinous acts.

  19. Maggie Fanelli says:

    This is all too common.

  20. D H says:

    Would anyone agree that we have a ton of “kids” out there that simply aren’t equipped to care for children as they can’t see past their own selfish needs? I have heard so many times about how people simply want their kids to “be quiet” so that they can get some rest/sleep – which (sometimes) drive their erratic and abusive behaivour? ‘Tis truly easier to become a parent – than to be one…

    If he were a judge he would get off free =P
