UPDATE: Twin skinhead thugs sought in Newhall daytime robbery

Deputies scoured Newhall on Friday afternoon, looking for two suspects – possibly identical twins – in a robbery that happened on Lyons Avenue at Newhall Avenue. Shortly before 2:30 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station scrambled to the intersection. “This was a strong arm robbery,” Lt. Leo Bauer told The Signal, noting that a man was robbed outside of the Valencia Liquors store at the intersection. A strong-arm robbery means no weapons were involved. As deputies searched parts of Newhall, a dispatcher broadcast a description of the suspects as  identical, possibly identical twins, each of them 6-foot and 200 pounds, with bald heads and wearing the same clothing.  One of the suspects had a Swastika tattoo on the right side of his neck. The suspects were described as wearing black and red shorts and white T-shirts. They took from the victim a black men’s wallet containing Illinois identification and a iPhone X cell phone marked with a rainbow sticker. jholt@signalscv.com 661-287-5527 On Twitter as @jamesarthurholt
