According to a release issued by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s station, the School Resource Deputy at the school was approached by a student who informed him of a strong-armed robbery that occurred Sunday in the area of Via Princessa and Lost Canyon Road in Canyon Country.

The student told the deputy that a group of kids had forcibly taken his cell phone from him on Halloween when he was walking home. The deputy was able to identify one of the students suspected in the robbery and detained him in the school’s administrative office, in handcuffs.

During the detention, the suspect, a 16-year old boy, ran out of the office and onto the school campus. Deputues established a containment around the schools and located him by the athletic fields.

He was taken to the sheriff’s station and booked on suspicion of robbery, a felony. He was later transported to Sylmar Juvenile Hall where he is being held without bail pending future court proceedings.
