A bat-wielding man who reportedly came at local sheriff’s deputies inside a Saugus mobile home park late Sunday afternoon was tasered and taken to hospital, a sheriff’s official said.

About 4:10 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station received two reports from the Lily of the Valley mobile home park on Bouquet Canyon Road, just north of Shadow Valley Lane, said Lt. Tom Bryski.

One of the reports was for a disturbance, and the other was for an assault involving a weapon, he said.

Deputies responding to the park found a man in distress holding a baseball bat, Bryski said.

Other sheriff’s units were called to the scene.

“He had apparently cut himself, and he had to be tasered,” Bryski said. “He had a baseball bat.”

“He was taken to hospital for psychological evaluation,” he said.

The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, was taken by paramedics to hospital by ambulance, said Supervisor Bernard Peters of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

“We transported one male adult from the mobile home park,” he said.
