VICTORVILLE – A residential burglary suspect was expected to be arraigned this week following his arrest on Sunday.
The suspect is a parolee, Davon Sheppard, of neighboring Hesperia, who tried to escape twice from police during his apprehension. Reports are that Sheppard was inside a residence in the 14000 block of Begonia Road. A sheriff’s deputy, Max Kunzman, responded to the call and spotted the suspect inside the residence. Kunzman reported that Sheppard fled from a bathroom window and tried to escape.
Other deputies responded, arresting Sheppard, who later kicked out the window of a patrol car unit and jumped from the vehicle, where he fell onto the broken glass, cutting his arm and injuring his ankle, according to reports. Police did not specify Sheppard’s condition after suffering his injuries, nor was it disclosed if the cuts to his arm and his injured ankle were serious.
Sheppard was arrested on charges of home invasion robbery and residential burglary, and also faces charges of resisting arrest and vandalism pertaining to the police car unit that was damaged.
Sheppard, who was taken to Victor Valley Jail, is a parolee for home invasion robbery. He has also faced charges of participation in a criminal street gang. In a Dec. 2007 robbery, he was convicted and has served time for the felony charges. He is currently on parole for that crime.
In November 2010, Sheppard was also convicted on a variety of vehicle code violations which included driving without a license, no vehicle registration and failing to provide insurance verification.
