VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): A shocking video surfaced on the Victor Valley News Facebook group that showed a small child being not only roughly handled, but hit on the face with what appears to be a larger iPad-like tablet. The woman was exiting the Kohls located at 14305 Bear Valley Rd. with her three-year old male child crying loudly.
The mother, who has now been identified, as 39-year-old Victorville resident Yvonne Camargo was seen on the video handling the child roughly as she placed him into the car seat. She roughly wipes the tears from the eyes of the child’s tells him to “shut up” and hits him on the face with the tablet.
When approached by the passer-byers, the woman appears to be shocked, opens the back door to retrieve her car keys where you see the child holding his face and she closes it back.
A concerned viewer of that recording reported the incident at 9:00 p.m. after viewing the video on a social media site. Deputy Abernathy identified the woman as Yvonne Camargo, and made contact with her at her Victorville home. The deputy examined the child for injuries, conducted a criminal interview with Camargo and notified Children and Family Services. The case is being submitted to the District Attorney’s Office.
