Man sought in assault

The victim filed no complaint — no one could find him.

The host didn’t know his guest’s name.

And the perpetrator was nowhere to be found.

But Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s deputies were searching Monday for a baseball-bat-wielding partygoer who reportedly hit a guest in the head with his weapon during a weekend party that turned into a brawl at a Saugus home.

The assault was reported to deputies shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday at a home on Arriola Avenue, according to a report filed in the SCV Sheriff’s Station log.

At the scene, deputies recovered as evidence a tan-colored wooden baseball bat with a broken handle. They also found partygoers — most of whom didn’t want to talk. But what they didn’t find was the victim.

The perpetrator started the fight, one witness told a deputy, “but when he got out-numbered he went out to his car and got a bat.”

“Then he walked into the house and started swinging it at anyone who got near him. One guy got hit in the head and fell down but I don’t know who that was,” the witness said.

The host of the party said he didn’t know who the victim was, either.

Deputies didn’t find the victim at the party or at the local hospital.

The partygoers and host “were non-desirous of any police action,” the deputy wrote in his report. Investigators determined an assault was committed anyway.

The suspect was described as a 6-foot-tall Armenian man with black hair and brown eyes, weighing 180 pounds, believed to be about 20 years old and having multiple tattoos on his torso.

No victim, no crime. If the victim does show up, maybe a call to Animal Control would be better. I am glad I don't live next door to this house, probably nothing good happens there, especially since noone is talking. I think the City should pass an ordinance on parties, Deputies get called, the resident gets billed for them showing up and breaking it up. I am sure this tied a few Deputies up for a good bit of time. --edited.

In addition to this assault, Amway has financially assaulted 10s of millions of people:

They should probably put out a BOLO for a white Lexus or BMW

Dirtbag-on-dirtbag, so no crime here - let nature take its course and thin out the herd. We don't need this in Saugus.

...and gold chains

Once again the stupid bigots come out to play. Stereotyping the victim and the suspects. We know nothing about why they really didn't want to press charges. Perhaps they knew each other and didn't want to admit it..Parents didn't know there was a party..there are all kinds of reasons, other than gold chains and a bmw.

scvforall: I agree. Who are they to pass judgment with such limited information? Maybe the one who got attacked is afraid to press charges because this guy is so violent.

Why is it so bad to have a few people over for an evening. Someone drinks too much and gets out of control. There is no reason to attach all the other inferences to this for the victim or the homeowners.

Passing judgment is an art form here in the comment section of The Signal, you know that. Lighten up, Geez. No charges, no complaints. Don’t see you ragging on the Amyway comment.

Because it is Amyway.
