An intoxicated woman who allegedly stole a taxi cab at the Westfield Valencia Town Center mall Sunday was arrested at gunpoint by local sheriff’s deputies, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

Shortly after 6:10 p.m. Sunday, deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station were called to the parking lot near Macy’s on Valencia Boulevard, near McBean Parkway, said Lt. Tom Bryski.

“Apparently, a cab was stolen by a (intoxicated) woman,” he said.

The woman was detained at gunpoint in the Macy’s parking structure, he said.

No shots were fired and no one was hurt.

Deputies were interviewing the suspect shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday.

Charges are pending.
