DIXON (CBS13) — Paul McGraw probably won’t win any Father Of The Year awards any time soon, especially after what he’s accused of doing with his infant.

Solano County Sheriff’s deputies say he brought his 1-year-old baby when he and another man allegedly broke into a shed in rural Dixon on Tuesday.

“It can’t be tolerated by society,” said deputy Daryl Snedeker. “Nobody who isn’t bent in their thinking in some way would ever do anything like this.

We went looking for reaction from McGraw’s family, but one man sped off on his motorcycle before we could get a question in.

Neighbors of McGraw’s alleged accomplice, Dean French, weren’t surprised to hear he was in trouble, but they were shocked to hear a baby was involved this time.

“He had to be super desperate to not even realize what he was doing,” said Star Chis. “That’s super sad—sad for the baby, for his mom.”

Deputies say the property owner happened to come by, catching the men hauling stuff like tools, and even a microscope out from the shed to the car.

The property owner blocked the car in. Rather than fight, McGraw made what deputies call his first smart decision—he surrendered.

“Maybe the child being there made the suspect think, ‘I’m limited in what I could do here,’” Snedeker said.

McGraw and French are being bars in the Solano County Jail. In addition to burglary charges, McGraw was booked for willful cruelty to a child.
