A 20-year-old Canyon Country man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend while she held their infant son.

Late Wednesday night, law enforcemen­t personnel responded to a report of a domestic violence incident on the 23400 block of Newhall Avenue, according to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoma­n for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“Upon arrival, deputies learned during a verbal argument, the victim’s boyfriend physically assaulted her while she was carrying their 4-month-old son,” said Arriaga. “The victims did not sustain any injury from the incident.”

Deputies were informed, after completing their initial investigat­ion, that the suspect had fled the scene soon after the alleged assault

“Deputies learned the suspect was at his residence,” said Arriaga. “They arrived at the 19000 block of Fairweathe­r Street in Canyon Country and arrested him without incident.”

The suspect was arrested at approximat­ely 1 a.m. on suspicion of spousal battery and child endangerme­nt. He was held in lieu of $25,000 bail, but released on bond later that same day.
