A man was arrested on suspicion of spousal assault during a verbal argument, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies.

During the investigation, deputies discovered the suspect shut the door on his spouse’s hand during a verbal argument.  

The victim sustained minor injury and was evaluated on the scene by medical personnel, Arriaga added. The suspect left the area and deputies were unable to locate him. 

Later that day, deputies responded to a second call from the same location. The victim had asked deputies to check the vicinity because they reported seeing the suspect again.

He was later released on bond, she added.
