Deputies arrested a man early Friday morning on suspicion of breaking into his ex’s home in an attempt to commit burglary.
At approximately 5 a.m. deputies responded to the 31300 block of Quail Valley Road in Castaic regarding a report of an ongoing burglary at that residence, according to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“Upon arrival, deputies learned the victim’s ex-boyfriend, male 34 years old, attempted to gain access to the residence from a rear sliding door,” Arriaga wrote via email Monday. “A male matching the suspect description was detained on scene and positively identified as the suspect by the victim.”
The man, a Fillmore resident, was transported to the SCV Sheriff’s Station and booked on suspicion of residential burglary.
He was held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
