Two teenagers were arrested in connection with a gang-related assault in Canyon Country, sheriff's officials said Monday.

An argument during a Saturday night party in the 15400 block of Sierra Highway in Canyon Country turned violent after two teenagers armed with a baseball bat and a knife attacked another pair of teenagers, according to a sheriff's press release.

The suspects, a 17-year-old male from Canyon Country and a 17-year old male from Canoga Park, allegedly struck a 17-year old victim with the bat and stabbed the same victim in the torso with a knife.

The suspects also are accused of striking a 19-year-old male with the baseball bat, a sheriff's statement said.

Both victims were taken by a witness to a nearby fire station, where they received initial treatment.

They were transported to a hospital for further treatment. Their conditions Monday were not known, but their injuries were not believed to be life threatening, according to a sheriff's press release.

Within hours of the attack, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station deputies had arrested two suspected juvenile gang members.

Both juveniles were arrested in the 30000 block of Tick Canyon Road in Canyon Country, a sheriff's statement said.

The subjects were booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

They were later transported to Sylmar Juvenile Hall for housing pending future court proceedings.
