Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to a stabbing in Canyon Country Wednesday afternoon after two brothers got into an altercation.
The incident was reported to have occurred on the 29400 block of Kristine Court around 4:30 p.m., with Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel responding to reports of a stabbing victim approximately 15 minutes later, according to Supervisor Franklin Lopez.
While SCV Sheriff’s Station deputies were responding to the scene regarding what was later deemed an assault with a deadly weapon incident, they were made aware that a possible suspect was leaving the location in a vehicle, according to Sgt. Curt Messerschmidt.
The man was located and was then detained by deputies in a vehicle a short distance away, while another man was located at the scene with a puncture wound to the stomach and was transported to a local trauma center, Messerschmidt said.
Upon further investigation, deputies discovered it to be a brother-on-brother incident, Messerschmidt added.
“They appear to have gotten into an argument over some personal matters, and both brothers actually assaulted one another,” Messerschmidt said, adding that both will be listed as suspects/victims.
Messerschmidt also confirmed that one of the weapons used in the incident was a pair of garden shears.
Neighbor Essa Abdulnour, 15, said he saw a man covered in blood on his chest being taken away via ambulance.
“I saw the Fire Department (and) all the cops show up,” Abdulnour added.
Neither of the suspects/victims’ identities have been released, pending further investigation, Messerschmidt added.
