A robbery/carjacking occurred near Jakes Way and the 14 Freeway overpass. The victim was approached by three male black juveniles who demanded the keys to the victim’s vehicle. When the victim refused, they attacked him until he surrendered the keys. The subjects picked up the keys and took the victim’s vehicle. Two of the subjects were later arrested in the City of Hollywood, shortly after the incident. A third subject turned himself in to Santa Clarita Station Detectives the following day.
A Residential burglary occurred near the 18000 block of Sundowner Way. An unknown suspect pried open a pedestrian door leading into the garage of the location and took several tools.

If you have any information regarding these incidents, please contact the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station.
A grand theft occurred near the 29500 block of Abelia Road. A male suspect, pretending to be the victim’s grandson, called and asked for money to be wired for medical bills after being involved in a traffic accident.
