Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to a reported armed robbery in Newhall Saturday.

The incident was reported around 2:30 p.m. on the 22500 block of 14th Street, outside of Dooly’s Liquor & Market, according to Sgt. Dmitry Barkon with the SCV Sheriff’s Station.

The suspect reportedly wielded a metal pipe at the victim, hitting him several times, according to Sgt. Brian Shreves of the SCV Sheriff’s Station.

The suspect then reportedly stole the victim’s cell phone and wallet with $1,500 in cash and threw the pipe before fleeing on foot, Shreves said.

While the victim reportedly identified the suspect by name, no arrests have been made, with the suspect still at large as of Monday.

“My understanding is the victim and suspect knew each other,” Barkon said Saturday.
