SUMMARY: On July 20, 2021, deputies from the Victorville Police Department responded to an assault call in the parking lot of Big Lots. The caller told Sheriff’s Dispatch an unknown person had run over an employee while attempting to leave with stolen merchandise.
Upon arrival, deputies learned the victim followed the suspect out of the store after seeing him leave without paying for a television and bedding he had in his possession. After placing the items in his car, the suspect began to drive away. The vehicle hit the victim in the process, causing her to fall to the ground. She suffered an injury to her head and wrist and was transported to a hospital for treatment.
At approximately 3:28 pm, Deputy J. Ortega saw the suspect vehicle on 7th Street near Forrest Avenue. He conducted a traffic stop and detained the suspect, later identified as Kenneth Deshon Berry. During a search of Berry’s vehicle, Ortega located the bedding taken from the business. Berry was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Deputy J. Ortega at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
