04.22.2022 | 5:00 PM | TUSTIN – A repeat criminal was arrested yet again after threatening a girl on a high-school campus, police said.

Quinnton Xavier Roberson, 27, of Santa Ana, was arrested after officers responded to Tustin High School, located in the 1100 block of El Camino Real, around 9:00 AM.

There police learned that Roberson had approached a 17-year-old female as she exited her vehicle in the school parking before threatening her and motioning towards his waistband as if he possessed a weapon.

Roberson was located nearby and taken into custody without further incident. No weapons were found on him at the time of the arrest.

Jail records indicate Roberson is being held without the possibility of bail until his next court appearance on Apr. 26, 2022. He was facing charges of attempted kidnapping, criminal threats, and violating probation.

This is not Roberson’s first encounter with law-enforcement, court records show. A review of Orange County Superior Court records shows that Roberson has engaged in a slew of increasingly dangerous crimes since 2018 when he was charged with, and subsequently pled guilty to, a charges of misdemeanor vandalism in one case and driving under the influence of alcohol in another.

Then, in early 2019, Roberson was again charged with, and subsequently pled guilty to, driving under the influence with another charge for driving while his license was suspended for a prior DUI conviction.

Thereafter in late 2020, Roberson was charged, and again subsequently pled guilty to, misdemeanor public intoxication.

His crimes continued in 2021 when he was again charged, and pled guilty to, driving under the influence and driving on a suspended or revoked license in one case. In another case he was charged and pled guilty to two felony counts including criminal threats and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury.
