A 47-year-old man was in custody Friday for allegedly throwing a small ax at his wife.

At about 11.20 a.m. Thursday, deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station arrested the man at a home in the 27000 block of Hidaway Ave. in Canyon Country and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon likely to cause great bodily injury.

"We went to an address in Canyon Country for some kind of family disturbance, when it was brought to the attention of one of our deputies that in the recent past he threw an ax toward another member of his family," Detective Rick Welch said Friday.

Early reports, later confirmed by law enforcement officers, identified the relative as the man's wife.

The man was being held on $30,000 bail at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.
