*Nick Cannon’s brother Gabriel Cannon has been detained by police near Los Angeles on suspicion of assault and robbery.
Gabriel – who reportedly fathered a child with Danger from VH1’s “For the Love of Ray-J” reality series – was detained in Studio City on Wednesday (March 9) along with an unnamed associate for allegedly attacking a father and son and attempting to steal video camera equipment, according to KCBS.
The alleged victims, Alejo Moreno and his father Alex, are said to work in reality TV.
Alejo tells KCBS, “My dad goes around the front and he sees them taking our cameras out through the front. They took both of our cameras, the ones we work with every day.”
Alex Moreno adds, “They robbed us and beat us. They were all in the building. They tried taking our jewelry, they took my platinum cross, they tried ripping my watch off, our diamond earrings.”
Cannon, who appeared opposite his brother in the 2006 movie “Even Money,” remained in custody at press time.
