The suspect, who was not identified, was taken into custody without incident Wednesday afternoon around 1:30 p.m.

Sheriff’s Station officials apprehended the woman without incident as she tried to leave a mobile home through the back window after an hourslong standoff with officials, according to a witness at the mobile home park.

Deputies responded to a reported kidnapping that involved the female suspect who allegedly took a man hostage at gunpoint at the 27700 block of Parker Road. The incident was reported to Sheriff’s Station officials around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

“Deputies are working as hard to resolve the issue without anyone getting hurt,” said Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station during the standoff.

A gun was later found and confiscated by deputies after the woman was arrested.

Deputies asked residents to avoid the area while they worked on a peaceful resolution, he said.

A Special Weapons And Tactics team arrived on scene also, and nearby homes were evacuated for the safety of those who live nearby, Dubin said.

The woman allegedly held the victim at gunpoint, however, the victim managed to escape without being hurt. The alleged victim reportedly did not know the suspect, officials said. 

The female suspect, whose identity was not released, is now believed to be alone in a mobile home inside the mobile home park.

No one has been injured and there are no children involved, Dubin said.

The man whom the suspect allegedly kidnapped was not harmed.
