The Signal - - NEWS -

A Se­cu­rity guard at Six Flags Magic Moun­tain was in­jured and treated at the hos­pi­tal this past week­end after he al­legedly con­fronted four young pot-smok­ing men.

The 38-year-old vic­tim, who works as a se­cu­rity su­per­vi­sor at the amuse­ment park, was al­legedly thrown to the ground by a sus­pect de­scribed as 5-foot-9 and 240 pounds, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials with the Santa Clarita Val­ley Sher­iff’s Sta­tion.

Jayson Keenan Toles, an 18-year-old Gar­dena man who works as a nurs­ery worker, was ar­rested by deputies Sun­day about 8 p.m. on sus­pi­cion of bat­tery caus­ing se­ri­ous bod­ily in­jury.

No in­for­ma­tion was re­leased re­lat­ing to the ex­tent of the vic­tim’s in­juries.

“On Sun­day evening, the vic­tim, a Six Flags Se­cu­rity Su­per­vi­sor, age 38,

ap­proached four males who were re­port­edly smok­ing mar­i­juana in the theme park,” Shirley Miller, spokes­woman for the SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion told The Sig­nal.

“As he and an­other se­cu­rity su­per­vi­sor were es­cort­ing the males to an area to speak with them (when) the males split up and started run­ning,” she said.

“One of the males grabbed the vic­tim and threw him to the ground.”

Toles was trans­ported and booked to SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion.

The vic­tim, whose iden­tity has not been dis­closed,

was treated by park paramedics and later taken to the hos­pi­tal for fur­ther treat­ment, Miller said.

Toles was sched­uled to ap­pear to­day in San Fer­nando Su­pe­rior Court.
