Boca's Robert Kimbrough Charged With Child Abuse

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Robert Kimbrough, a security guard, is free on $5000 bond after allegedly kicking and punching his teenage son.

In a police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, the teen told police that Kimbrough — using a security cam monitored on his cell phone — watched his son enter the master bedroom seeking money that Kimbrough had confiscated. Kimbrough, 37, who was out of the house at the time, apparently returned home to confront his son. Kimbrough allegedly punched, slapped and kicked his son multiple times.

Police found marks all over the teen’s body that allegedly support the abuse claim.

Kimbrough — who only denied the kicking and punching part of the story, according to police — was charged with cruelty to a child.

Police confiscated a video recording of the event which was captured using the same system Kimbrough was using to keep tabs, remotely, on his son.
