A man who appeared to be the landlord of a Saugus apartment is behind bars after he allegedly attacked a tenant Wednesday and left her unconscious on the floor, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies arrested Sameh Bekhit, 33, of Santa Clarita in the 20000 block of Plum Canyon Road at about 10:30 p.m. on suspicion of battery inflicting serious bodily injury, said Lt. Brenda Cambra.

Bekhit allegedly punched the 41-year-old woman about 4 p.m., leaving her unconscious near the entryway of her apartment, Cambra said.

Another woman who was in the apartment at the time told investigators she heard the tenant arguing with someone and then heard a loud thump.

After she went downstairs, she told deputies she saw the tenant passed out on the floor, Cambra said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
