Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies took one young man into custody after receiving reports of an armed robbery on Tuesday.
The reports received were of a cellphone being taken, said SCV Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Shirley Miller.
Deputies were led on a search around Newhall near 9th Street on Tuesday afternoon, seeking at least two young suspects who were reportedly armed with a dull, chrome handgun.
“Deputies are still working the scene,” said Miller at around 4:30 p.m. “A person was detained but unknown if (the) suspect or any arrests were made at this time.”
Following their search, deputies took one into custody and released the remaining suspects after detaining them in the Newhall area.
