A felony assault suspect was arrested Thursday after she allegedly kicked a door open and assaulted her boyfriend after a verbal argument in Newhall, officials said.
On Thursday around 4 p.m., deputies responded to a call for service regarding a domestic violence incident that had taken place on the 24800 block of Walnut Street in Newhall, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
