California man faces charges after surveillance video shows him threw his young son to the ground.
Shocking video was recorded last week of a California man who, with a young child, “as to use as a weapon” during an altercation with a woman, Riverside police said.
The encounter was recorded by a nearby resident of the security camera, WSVN reported. The individual shown in the images, who the police identified to Fox News as Techhoak Danny Lim, 27, allegedly used the child, “almost like a baseball bat.”
Lim is the father of the child, which is the one-and-a-half-year-old, WSVN reported.
In the video obtained by Fox 11, a woman in a white T-shirt is spotted moving from behind an outside wall to the other. In the following excerpt, the woman is no longer visible when a man with a child comes into the picture. Within a few moments, the child is seen getting dropped from the arms of the man before he scooped shortly after. The man seems to be talking to someone outside the screen and runs in the direction after giving a quick once over of the child.

Another video recording shows that both the man and the woman, where the man appears to throw the small child down whipping before the child again, moving it in the direction of the woman. After this, the child seems to have been thrown on the ground once more.
The police said that the authorities were able to track the couple and their shared child” after watching the recording. The police said that the woman in the video is not the child’s biological mother, but she shares custody of the child with the Lim. The adult couple is an unmarried “couple,” police said.
Riverside police said the officials “were able to determine the male half committed a crime of domestic violence against the female half and waved with their child around as if to use it as a weapon against the mother, that they are a particular offence to the abuse of children.”
Lim was booked on 5 July for the crime of domestic violence, and the crime of abuse of children before they are released on bond the following day, police said.
