A Canyon Country man is scheduled to appear in court next month, accusing of hitting another man with a golf club. Steven Rodriguez, described by law enforcement as a 55-year-old carpenter was arrested Nov. 22 shortly after 7 p.m. on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to the incident near Valle del Oro and Costa Brava in Newhall Wednesday evening, station spokeswoman Shirley Miller said.
