Suspects sought in Canyon Country home invasion

Local detectives are investigating a home invasion at a Canyon Country residence Wednesday evening.

At approximately 9 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to a home on Blue Aspen Lane for initial reports of an attempted home invasion.

Three male suspects are reported to have broken the rear sliding window of a home while the homeowners were inside eating dinner, according to Sgt. Chris Voda with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“I believe they thought the house was empty and not occupied,” Voda said.

The suspects tried to run out of the house, and wrestled with the homeowner before fleeing in a dark blue sedan, according to Voda.

Nothing was taken and the homeowner sustained minor injuries, Voda said.

As of 10:45 p.m., deputies were still canvassing the neighborhood and searching for the suspects.

This is a breaking news story and will be update as more information becomes available.
