Santa Clarita Valley deputies took three into custody after two members of the custodial staff at Rosedell Elementary School allegedly were attacked by skateboarders accused of trespassing around 10 p.m. Friday.
“Basically, it was three kids that appeared to have been trespassing,” said Lt. Nagelmann of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“They were confronted by the custodians and two of the males were juvenile and there was one male adult (who was 18),” Nagelmann said.
The report indicated the custodians asked the teens to leave, and when they were confronted, the teens attacked the men.
Deputies received the report at 9:55 p.m., and fire officials also responded and were on the scene by 10:07 p.m., according to Supervisor Cheryl Sims of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
“The patient was hit in the head but it looks like the ambulance was canceled,” Sims said, meaning no one was taken to the hospital via ambulance.
Jacob Bolin, 18, of Santa Clarita, was arrested on trespassing and a misdemeanor battery charge, according to Nagelmann.
The two other juveniles, whose names were not released, were detained also for trespassing. Deputies are currently investigating the potential of additional charges.
“One of the male juveniles threatened one of the custodians that he possibly was armed with a weapon,” Nagelmann said. “He was arrested for criminal threats.”
