Beehives stolen from farm on The Old Road
Three beehives were stolen from a bee farm on The Old Road in Santa Clarita shortly before April 29, according to a report filed on May 3 by an employee of the farm. There were live bees in each hive.

According to the report, the employee was conducting a routine check of the beehives on April 29, when he noticed three of them missing. He reported that all three hives were accounted for in his previous inspection.

The hives are used commercially to produce honey for sale. All three hives were valued at $900.

Transient assaulted while sleeping on park bench
A transient man from El Salvador was assaulted by several people on May 3. The victim, whose identity was shielded, fell asleep on a park bench on Saturday evening.

He was awakened when he was struck by an unknown object in the head and torso areas.

The blows knocked the man unconscious, and he was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for treatment.

He told deputies that he did not know how he got to the hospital, nor did he remember much about the assault, since he was knocked out.

Deputies did not release the name of the park where the assault occurred. The transient came to the United States from El Salvador 15 days ago and has been in Santa Clarita since his arrival.
