Police have arrested a California man after a neighbor’s surveillance camera captured a violent argument with his girlfriend.

In the video, he can be seen using his 18-month-old baby as a weapon, swinging him and hurling the child at her.

Riverside police say the woman was trying to hide from her boyfriend inside the gated community last week.

But when he found her, his temper flared.

Det. Jerilynn Czobakowski said an officer investigating the video was so upset he went back to the neighborhood on his own to track down the suspect.

Techhoak Danny Lim was arrested for child endangerment with great bodily injury.

"He did admit and said he would probably be going to jail for what he did,” Det. Czobakowski said.

Police said the little boy only has cuts and bruises and is back with his biological mother.

Lim is free on a $50,000 bond.
