Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s deputies arrested three robbery suspects at gunpoint Wednesday who were sought in a Canyon Country purse-snatching, a spokesman said.

Deputies detained the three men shortly after 4:15 p.m. under the Highway 14 overpass near Evi Lane, said Deputy Josh Dubin.

Shortly before the arrests, deputies — with the help of a sheriff’s helicopter — had been searching an area of Jakes Way on reports that a woman had her purse stolen, Dubin said.

The woman was not hurt in the incident, Dubin said, adding: “There was no weapon used. It was force only.”
