A man was arrested Sunday after deputies say he attempted to charge another man with a knife and threatened him.
According to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, the arrest stems from deputies responding to a reported assault with a deadly weapon on the 17100 block of Sierra Highway.
“It was reported a male Hispanic adult approached the victim with a black knife,” said Arriaga. “Upon arrival, deputies learned during a verbal argument between the victim and suspect, the suspect brandished a pocket knife and ran towards the victim while making verbal threats.”
The victim entered his yard in order to create a barrier between he and the suspect, according to Arriaga, but the suspect continued to make verbal threats while walking away, causing fear in the victim.
“Deputies detained a male matching the suspect description on the 17500 block of Sierra Highway in Canyon Country, later confirmed to be the suspect,” said Arriaga. “He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and criminal threats.”
The man was booked into the SCV Sheriff’s Station and remained in custody as of Tuesday.
