A man who threatened some workers in Canyon Country with a screwdriver Thursday was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a brief hunt by deputies.

Workers, possibly from a Southern California Edison truck parked near the Santa Clara River bed, reported the man approached and threatened them with a screwdriver then fled.

Deputies set up a “loose containment” area around the Santa Clara River bed, where the suspect eventually “popped up” and was arrested at Sandy Road and Rock Drive shortly before 4:30 p.m., sheriff’s Lt. Rob Hahnlein said.

Although deputies drew their weapons on the suspect, no shots, officials said.

No injuries were reported, Hahnlein said.
