Detectives arrested two Canyon Country men suspected of beating a mother and her son with a pair of baseball bats near an apartment complex on Soledad Canyon Road earlier this week, authorities said Thursday.

The two men, ages 19 and 23, were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury. They are being held at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station on $30,000 bail, according to arrest records.

Criminal charges had not been filed against either man Thursday by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Detectives identified both men and arrested them less than a day after the Monday attack.

The two men, riding in a red Jeep Cherokee, started yelling at a man, 21, and his mother, 49, who were walking together in front of an apartment complex in the 18500 block of Soledad Canyon Road, Lt. Brenda Cambra of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said in an email.

The two men started yelling and flashing gang signs at the man, Cambra said.

After an argument, the two men got out of the Jeep and allegedly hit both with baseball bats. The assailants then drove away.

A witness who saw the attack called authorities, Cambra said.

Both victims suffered bruises and complained of pain but declined medical treatment.
