A stabbing victim was taken to the hospital and a teenager was arrested at gunpoint by deputies who responded to a report of the stabbing at a home in Castaic early Thursday afternoon.
The incident happened shortly before 1:15 p.m at a home on the 32200 block of Green Hill Road, between Pinto Place and Avion Circle, Austin Bennett, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, said.
“The call came in for Green Hill Drive for a stabbing victim,” he said.
About one hour after having received the call, deputies arrested a young man who was spotted emerging from some bushes about a block from the home where the stabbing is believed to have happened.
The suspect was taken into custody, hands handcuffed behind his back, on west side of The Old Road, between Pinto and Victoria Road.
The arrest followed an hourlong investigation by deputies at the house on Green Hill Drive.
Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and paramedics received the first reports of the incident at 1:13 p.m., said Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
Deputies in at least four Sheriff’s Department vehicles converged at the house.
Once they were given permission by deputies that the scene was OK for them to approach, paramedics got to the patient at 1:32 p.m.
The patient was then taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital.
