Two Valencia men, identified as roommates, were arrested on suspicion of assault Wednesday — one on a felony charge, the other on a misdemeanor — after they allegedly got into a fight when an argument turned physical. In this case, “physical” means one man allegedly slammed another’s head into a cinder block, sheriff’s officials said. On Wednesday, deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to reports of a disturbance on the 22800 block of Decoro Drive, at Seco Canyon Road. “It started as a verbal argument that turned physical between both parties,” Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station, said Monday. “There was reportedly a dispute between two adult males that are in a roommate situation,” she said. “It started as a verbal argument that turned physical between both parties.” “At some point (a 52-year-old suspect) allegedly slammed the other man’s head into a cinder block wall outside the home,” Miller said. Deputies arrested both men — the 52-year-old unemployed Valencia man on felony assault charges and a 22-year-old Valencia man on misdemeanor battery charges.
