A Valencia woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after she allegedly slashed a local sheriff’s deputy in the neck with a broken bottle Friday.

The attacked deputy, who was treated for his injuries at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, has recovered and was back at work Monday with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Deputies arrested 29-year-old Sandra Marie Miller shortly before noon Friday when the alleged attack happened on suspicion of the attempted murder of a peace officer.

Miller was taken into custody Friday and later transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, with bail set at $1 million, arrest documents maintained by the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Inmate Information Center.

She is scheduled to appear in San Fernando Superior Court Tuesday.

The incident happened shortly after 11:30 a.m. Friday, at Orchard Village Road and Wiley Canyon Road, Lt. Ignacio Somoano, in charge of the station’s Detective Section, said.

“We’ve taken a female into custody near the school,” Lt. James Duran told The Signal on the day of incident.

“She was walking in traffic and when the deputy approached, she slashed him in the neck with a bottle,” he said.

The woman was identified as living about 1,400 feet from the intersection where the attack occurred.
