A 28-year-old Valencia man has been arrested in connection with an alleged road rage incident Saturday in which a woman suffered a serious injury to her eye, a spokesman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said.

At 7:53 a.m. Monday, detectives arrested at a location in the 28100 block of McBean Parkway Cory Allen Flenory on suspicion of mayhem, said Deputy Josh Dubin.

During the arrest, deputies used pepper spray to detain the suspect after he allegedly “kicked out” the window of a sheriff’s car, Dubin said.

Flenory, who according to Dubin was on parole at the time of the arrest, remains locked up in the jail at the local sheriff’s station with bail set at $100,000.

“The man who we believe is responsible for the incident has been arrested,” Dubin said.

“We received some information this morning to which deputies responded,” he said.

Detectives believe a BB gun was used in an apparent incident of road rage.

“There was a verbal altercation that happened in the Wal-mart parking lot,” Dubin said, referring to the store on The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch.

“As the victim pulled out of the parking lot onto the street an incident occurred as kind of a road rage or revenge for the verbal altercation,” he said.

“When we took him into custody, he kicked out the window of the radio car,” he said. “Deputies pepper-sprayed him.”

He is scheduled to appear in San Fernando Superior Court Wednesday.

A 22-year-old woman, meanwhile, is recovering from a serious eye injury after she was hit by an object which detectives now believe was a BB gun pellet, Dubin said.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m. Saturday, paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to reports of a passenger in a car who was hit in the eye, said Fire Department Inspector Scott Miller.

The incident happened on West Pico Canyon Road and The Old Road, near Coco’s Bakery Restaurant, Miller said.

The woman was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, he said.

Dubin said he learned the victim, a photographer, had been transferred to another hospital where she underwent emergency surgery to save her eye.

Dubin confirmed reports that surgeons at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center spent seven hours attending to the woman’s injury.
