Deputies searching for a mugging suspect who robbed a woman of her cell phone at gunpoint earlier this week arrested a man suspected of that crime in Newhall Thursday.

At least a half a dozen Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station units converged on an apartment complex on Costa Brava, near Valle Del Oro, east of Newhall Avenue, shortly after 4:45 p.m. Thursday.

“We did arrest one suspect in connection with an armed robbery that took place within this last week,” Sgt. Brian Hudson told The Signal late Thursday afternoon.

“Deputies caught up with the suspect entering an apartment on Costa Brava, got him to come out and he is now in custody,” Hudson said.

    Gotta love the picture………look at the female sergeant hiding behind the deputy….laughable.

    • Janice

      Lol,,, The female sgt. Is me and I actually wasn’t hiding. I had no cover or concealment whereas he had the cement wall. Also, I was ensuring I didn’t shoot him in his elbow if a shooting suddenly occurred so I couldn’t stand straight up. But, I must say the photo does give the appearance I was hiding. Not the case.

      • lois eisenberg

        To Janice the female Sgt.
        WAY TO GO BY PUTTING THEM IN THEIR PLACE!!!!!

        • Janice

          Thank you Lois.

      • Ron Bischof

        Is that a Sig-Sauer P229, Sergeant?

        • Janice

          No, it’s a M&P.

          • Ron Bischof

            Noted and that’s what one would expect. It just looked different in that picture.

            The M&P 2.0 is cool but isn’t available in CA, of course.

          • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

            This is what led me to believe you was a sheriff or in the military period that’s it that’s all A person that isn’t wouldn’t know this

          • Ron Bischof

            You don’t have to be in the military and/or police to have small arms expertise.

            Here’s Keanu Reeves, an actor:

          • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

  • Stacy Cona

    1st off ” this article is NOT accurate second my husband ain’t did nothing let’s be clear before u run a woman husbands name under the bus you should address why he got arrested but nothing was found period let’s address why would a skilled martial artist need a gun ? let’s address they came to my house with no warrant ? let’s address that all phones have tracking devices please track it ??? let’s address that my 4year old daughter and 6 year old son came out to guns drawn on they father and they never seen a gun besides tv before good job… why would a man with the newest iPhone steal someone phone ???why didn’t no one knock on my door ??? Instead of embarrassing a innocent man and I work at home I was on the phone with a customer let’s talk about that … They didn’t have a warrant I allowed them to search all our property including both cars on good faith and nothing

  • Stacy Cona

    • Stacy Cona

  • Stacy Cona

    also we was never handed his warrant 🤔For his arrest …. they was in my house before I gave permission they were on they radio talking about my medications in my name that had nothing to do with why they came 🙄 I do have a herniated disc which was really sad and painful when a sergeant made me sit on the ground

  • Stacy Cona

    What my husband need with a cellphone when we own the new iPhones always have

  • Stacy Cona

    Team trump 😊 Now let me go argue with trump haters adios have a blessed day

  • Stacy Cona

    Team no guns no violence 😍

    • Ron Bischof

      Non sequitur. They aren’t the root cause of violence.

      • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

        It’s very relevant to this article u must me a sheriff too 😴

        • Ron Bischof

          No, I’m not a sheriff and even if I were, you addressing my person rather than my argument is a failure of logic.

          If you’re asserting that guns are the root causation of violence, rebut my statement with a cogent argument.

          If instead your position is that law enforcement officers responding to a report of armed robbery should be unarmed, you may be beyond the reach of reason and facts.

          • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

            Team no guns and team no violence is that better since u seemed to be way off topic

          • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

            Violence does not only consist of guns 💡 If that was the case then officers wouldn’t be carrying guns

          • Ron Bischof

            Nor would the vast majority of non-violent law abiding citizens who own firearms.

          • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

            Well even non violent law abiding citizens who own firearms could have a child that may be getting bullied at school and decide to commit suicide using that gun the law abiding parent owns or take the weapon to school and commit murder 💡#violence

          • Ron Bischof

            In each of the cases you identify, a person is responsible to prevent access to a firearm by a juvenile or not to engage in homicide.

            The firearm remains an inanimate object.

            Since you’re ineptly asserting a causal link of firearms to violence, examine these facts:

            A 14 year old boy Committed suicide in Newhall last month I knew personally I won’t write his name because I will respect his family … at my kids elementary last year again in Santa Clarita a boy bought a gun to school to kill his classmates ….

          • Ron Bischof

            Your anecdotes, while tragic, don’t negate the statistical results provided in my prior post.

          • Candice Fuqyofeelins Mack

            Okay

  • billkealey

    Candice….darling…..you say your comments are base on real life. If you are in fact doing that, what planet are you living on? On this planet guns will always be here no matter how many “cute” sayings you come up with. As a law abiding citizen as long as bad guys have guns so will I. In a democratic society you just can’t get rid of them, it’s not possible. Education is what’s needed, not “cute” sayings or wishful thinking. There will aways be those who get hurt or killed by guns, always has been, that will never change. But we can make those numbers small with education. Cars kill or injure many many times the number of those killed or injured by guns. Shall we get rid of those? What about power tools? Sliding glass doors? Pretty much everything in the wrong hands can kill or injure someone. Education is key here.
