Brandon Spencer, 22, of Canyon Country, was arrested on assault with a deadly weapon charges last night in Saugus.

The investigation began after a report of a commercial burglary at a hobby store on the 25600 block of Bouquet Canyon Road, according to Sheriff’s Station arrest records.

Several Airsoft-style guns were stolen from the store after it closed, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Crime Prevention Unit deputies.

Deputies then responded to reports of a man driving a Ford Explorer alone near the Valencia mall, shooting BBs at patrons in front of the TGI Friday’s restaurant there around 11 p.m.

Six individuals, age 16-30 reported being shot at while standing in the outside area of the restaurant, by a man behind the wheel of an SUV.

There were minor injuries reported by the victims.

The SUV approached with its lights off, the driver poked an orange-tipped BB gun barrel out the window and fired several times, hitting two people, according to Sheriff’s Station reports.

Deputies caught up with Spencer, conducted a traffic stop and then found BB guns they alleged to have been stolen from the hobby store earlier in the evening.

Spencer was arrested on commercial burglary and assault with a deadly weapon charges.

He’s being held in lieu of $30,000 bail and is due at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday.

The BB gun shooting comes a little more than a month after a similar crime was reported in a Walmart parking lot in Stevenson Ranch.

The suspect in that crime seriously injured a woman who was shot in the eye following a brief dispute.

Deputies arrested Cory Allen Flenory, 27, of Valencia, in connection with that crime.

Flenory is facing one count each of mayhem and vandalism over $400, and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. Flenory’s charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison, if he’s convicted as charged.
