One individual was hospitalized Wednesday night after a “use of force” during a burglary investigation in Newhall, officials said.
Just before 7:30 p.m., deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station engaged a suspect in a burglary, known to have a no-bail warrant for their arrest, and set up a containment in the area around Old Orchard Park, according to Sergeant Barkon with the Station.
“We did detain one but we are still investigating,” Sergeant Barkon said. “We are not sure if it’s the same person who ran or another suspect.”
One person was sent to the local trauma center just before 8:15 p.m., according to Supervisor Rangel with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
“We transported one to a local hospital after a use of force,” the Supervisor said. “Our report does not specify if the patient was a deputy or suspect.”
Sergeant Barkon suggested that the one who was transported could have been sent to the hospital to be medically cleared before booking, and it is not believed a deputy was sent to the hospital.
The extent of injuries in relation to the investigation was not made public Tuesday night.
