More than a dozen heavily-armed deputies shut down an area across from the Santa Clarita Sports Complex Monday as they moved in to arrest one man on suspicion of domestic violence.
Shortly after 3:15 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station formed a dragnet near the intersection of Ruether Avenue and Centre Pointe Parkway.
As deputies with long-barreled firearms positioned themselves around a building on the northwest corner of the intersection, deputies moved in and arrested one man, detaining him in handcuffs.
“There is one person in custody,” Shirley Miller spokeswoman for the sheriff’s station confirmed, noting the arrest was related to the earlier family disturbance.
Deputies first responded to reports of a woman seen being pushed out of a car, Miller said, noting the vehicle was not moving at the time near the intersection of Golden Triangle Road and Carl Boyer Drive.
“When deputies responded, the female victim directed deputies to his whereabouts,” she said.
Both the suspect and the alleged victim were described by deputies as transients.
Traffic on Centre Pointe Parkway to the east of the scene was shut down as deputies carried out their search.
