Detectives with the Special Victims Unit of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station arrested a Canyon Country man on suspicion of rape Friday morning.

A spokesman with the District Attorney’s Office noted Monday the case was declined for prosecution due to insufficient evidence.

The alleged victim was a woman who said she was an acquaintance of the man who was at a Canyon Country home Nov. 8, according to Sgt. Brian Hudson of the SVU.

“Once inside the residence, the suspect sexually assaulted the victim,” Hudson said, citing the arrest report. 

The victim contacted the Sheriff’s Department and, after a two-month investigation, detectives arrested a suspect at 7:20 a.m. Friday, per arrest records.
