MAN ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER OF 1-YEAR-OLD BOY

A Yucca Valley man was arrested Sunday, accused of attempted murder of a one-year-old child. According to Sheriff’s Captain Trevis Newport, paramedics were called to the 55500 block of 29 Palms Highway sometime Saturday for an ill child. The boy was taken to Hi-Desert Medical Center with unspecified injuries and then flown to Loma Linda Medical Center where he is on life support. Doctors determined his injuries were consistent with child abuse and the case was turned over to Specialized Investigations. Detectives interviewed the mother’s boyfriend, Arthur Davies, 34, late Saturday night/early Sunday morning at his home in Yucca Valley. After an investigation, Arthur Davies was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, booked into the Central Detention Center, with his bail set at $1 million.
