My name is Deputy Manskar, Zone Leader for the Saugus (Zone 4) area. Your Zone leader is on vacation this week. I reviewed and prepared a detailed report this week for Newhall (Zone 6), as I do with the Saugus (Zone 4) every week. During the above dates, Newhall saw ten reported part one crimes within the city limits. Of those ten crimes, Newhall had two assaults, two residential burglaries, one grand theft auto, three petty thefts, one theft from an unlocked vehicle and one shoplift burglary.
Of the two assaults, one was a domestic violence and the other was a family related incident. In the domestic violence, which occurred off Race Street, the victim was strangled during an argument with her boyfriend. In the family assault, a father was attacked by his son after a verbal altercation.
There were two residential burglaries in Newhall last week. The first occurred in the 21200 block of Ficus Drive. The victim returned home to find his front screen door and bedroom sliding doors missing from the location. Detectives are following up on possible leads in this case. The second residential burglary occurred in the 25100 block of Highsprings Avenue. The victim believes an acquaintance broke into her residence and stole miscellaneous electrical equipment.
A 2013 Chevy Malibu was reported stolen from the 24000 block of Creekside Drive in Newhall. The vehicle was located in Palmdale the following day.
There were three petty thefts over the past week. One of the thefts occurred at Palace Cleaners in the 23300 block of Lyons Avenue. The victim had his phone stolen from the counter where he left in unattended for a period of time. The second theft occurred from Jack in The Box, located in the 22900 block of Lyons Avenue. The victim had his skateboard stolen when he too left it unattended. The third petty theft occurred in the 25000 block of Chestnut Street. The victim had her bicycle stolen from her front yard where she left it unsecured.
Newhall had a theft from an unlocked vehicle in the parking lot of 7-11, located in the 23400 block of Lyons Avenue. The victim had his phone stolen out of his unlocked vehicle while he was inside the business for approximately five minutes. Detectives are waiting for possible security video of the incident.
The last crime to report on was a shoplift burglary from Ralphs in the 24800 block of Orchard Village Road. The suspect entered the store and stole miscellaneous items. He then exited the store without making any attempt to pay for the items.
