On May 6, 2013, at approximately 6:00 p.m., deputies from the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station responded to a report of a disturbance at the Bruin Trailer Park in the 41000 block of Big Bear Blvd.
Upon arrival, deputies discovered Cody Anderson and several friends, including juveniles, to be drinking alcohol at Anderson’s residence in celebration of his 18th birthday. Anderson became upset with a male adult inside the residence which resulted in a physical altercation. A 15-year-old male juvenile attempted to break up the fight. A verbal disturbance between Anderson and the juvenile ensued which escalated into Anderson picking up a steak knife, thrusting it at the juvenile and cutting him on his wrist. The juvenile was able to take the knife from Anderson and left the residence without further incident. The juvenile was contacted by deputies in the field and interviewed. The juvenile did not require medical treatment.
Through the investigation, deputies determined another male juvenile subject at the scene had previously been reported as a runaway. The runaway juvenile was transported and released to the custody of his parents.
The suspect, Cody Anderson, was arrested and booked into the Big Bear Jail on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon. A criminal report has been forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for review and consideration of additional felony charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child endangerment. Cody Anderson remains in custody at West Valley Detention Center in lieu of $50,000 bail. An arraignment hearing in this matter is set for May 8 at San Bernardino County Superior Court.
