Police Say Davenport Man Used Toddler As Shield

  • Photo
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) Police say a Davenport man unsuccessfully used his 11-month-old child as a shield to keep from being arrested.

The Quad-City Times says 33-year-old Michael Robinson was taken into custody on Wednesday and faces several charges, including child endangerment, assault and burglary.

Officers say Robinson had kicked in the back door of the apartment occupied by the mother of the child and threatened her. Officers say he then forced his way into a nearby apartment where the child was staying and punched someone there.

Davenport Police Capt. Dale Sievert says the child wasn't harmed as officers took the child from Robinson and arrested him.

Robinson remained in Scott County Jail on Thursday, pending $20,000 bail. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
