A stab­bing vic­tim was taken to the hospi­tal, and a teenager was ar­rested at gun­point Thurs­day af­ter­noon, af­ter deputies re­sponded to a re­port of a stab­bing in a Cas­taic home.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened shortly be­fore 1:15 p.m at a home on the 32200 block of Green Hill Road, be­tween Pinto Place and Avion Cir­cle, Austin Ben­nett, spokesman for the Los An­ge­les County Fire De­part­ment, said.

“The call came in for Green Hill Drive for a stab­bing vic­tim,” he said.

About one hour af­ter hav­ing re­ceived the call, deputies ar­rested a young man who was spot­ted emerg­ing from some bushes about a block from the home where the stab­bing is al­leged to have hap­pened.

The sus­pect was taken into cus­tody, hands hand­cuffed be­hind his back, on the west side of The Old Road, be­tween Pinto and Vic­to­ria Road.

The ar­rest fol­lowed an hour­long in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Santa Clarita Sher­iff’s deputies at the house on Green Hill Drive.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Val­ley Sher­iff’s Sta­tion and paramedics re­ceived the first re­ports of the in­ci­dent at 1:13 p.m., said Shirley Miller, spokes­woman for the SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion.

Deputies in at least four Sher­iff’s De­part­ment ve­hi­cles con­verged at the house.

Once they were given per­mis­sion by deputies that the scene was OK for them to ap­proach, paramedics got to the pa­tient at 1:32 p.m.

The pa­tient was then taken to Henry

Mayo Ne­whall Hospi­tal.
