    Unhappy CA - Joshua Allen Robey - attempted murder, torture and child abuse of 2 mo old

    California father Joshua Allen Robey seen trying to strangle infant son on hidden camera footage

    LOS ANGELES - A Southern California man was caught by a hidden camera attempting to kill his 2-month-old son with a blanket fashioned as a noose, prosecutors said.

    Joshua Allen Robey, 24, is behind bars and due for arraignment Nov. 9 on one felony county each of attempted murder, torture and child abuse.

    According to the Orange County District Attorney, Robey went to his girlfriend's house last Tuesday to babysit their infant son.

    He didn't know his girlfriend had set up a spy camera in the home because she suspected he was cheating on her there - but what the footage revealed was far worse than two-timing.

    The shocking footage shows the transient dad wrapping a blanket around the baby's neck, picking him up by lifting the ends of the blanket "like a noose," and swinging the helpless infant around for more than a minute, prosecutors said.

    Robey then laid the baby back down on the bed and punched him several times in the chest with closed fists, prosecutors said.

    The baby was hospitalized. Prosecutors did not reveal the extent of his injuries.

    If convicted, Robey faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in state prison.

    Robey was arrested at a Santa Ana motel.

    The baby remains in the hospital with undisclosed injuries, the OCDA says.

    His father was scheduled to be arraigned today on one felony count each of attempted murder, torture, and child abuse with a sentencing enhancement for causing great bodily injury to a child under 5 years old. Prosecutors say they will seek bail of $1 million.

    <<Dated Fri. Oct 21st>>

    I'm sure we'll be hearing about the perps issues here, sooner or later. I can't stand it. Just. Can't. Stand. It.

    I have to wonder if the mom had ANY clue that he would abuse his own child, though.

    Maybe not and I'm not ''blaming'' her, but the bottom line is we are responsible for who we leave our children with, even their other parent if that person has issues and I'm betting he does. Be it drugs, alcohol, violence, I'll bet there was something there.

    I'm glad she caught him before this baby was found dead (or missing), I'm also glad that her mother took the baby to the ER where the police were called.

    and more

    The horrifying attack continued when Robey, who had been living with the girlfriend until moving to a motel three weeks prior, grabbed the child by the throat with both hands, lifted him in the air, and violently shook him, prosecutors said.



    This man is just pure evil. HIs cheating ways are the least of this mother's problems.

    It's difficult for me to even type this, but would you really have to work this hard if you wanted to kill a 2 month old baby? I mean, they are tiny and helpless and....ugh I feel sick to my stomach just saying these things! How does someone actually physically do them, I will never understand. And to his own baby!

    Sorry...my point was that it seems to me that he was enjoying the actual torture he was inflicting on his son, and not that he was actually attempting to murder him. I don't know that much about attempted murder but does there need to be intent for that charge to stick? Don't get me wrong, I hope it DOES stick. He could have very easily killed that poor child.

    This sounds more like someone who tortures for the thrill of it than someone who just lacks impulse control to me. Making a noose out of the baby blanket and swinging the baby around FOR MORE THAN A MINUTE...I wonder what facial expressions and body language this "father" shows on this video while he's hurting his son. I wonder if it really was frustration and anger, or if it was something even more sinister than that. What a twisted waste of space and oxygen he is.

    It's not just in our homes. Our children are hurt at school, in sports, at friends' and relatives' homes, while at scouts, at church. And sadly, it's always happened as there have always been sick people and vulnerable and innocent children.

    I'm starting to think that children need to be fitted with a tiny spy camera!!

    I wish they would report how this little baby boy is doing.

    And I wish his worthless sperm donor would suddenly stop breathing forevermore.

    Our "little Bean" is only 4 1/2 months old. I have been trying to start her on cereal and it gives her a tummy ache. Every time I try it she will cry in pain for about an hour. It breaks my heart to just hold her while she screams into my neck. Even our 2 year old Lab will try to comfort her – when it gets to the point that I have to put her down and walk away for a minute I find the dogs favorite toys in her bouncy seat when I go back to pick her up.
    I don’t understand how my dog has more compassion than some people.
