A 48-year-old man was arrested Thursday for assault with a deadly weapon for kicking another man in the head repeatedly during an after-midnight fight in downtown Newhall.

"Basically, somebody put the boots to somebody," said Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Lt. Joe Efflandt.

Because the arrested man wore shoes, the assault becomes assault with a deadly weapon, Efflandt said.

The two men, who are both homeless, began to fight at about 12:37 a.m. near Walnut and Eighth streets, Efflandt said.

The suspect is being held on $30,000 bail, and also has $20,000 in warrants, Efflandt said.

The other man declined medical treatment.
