Detectives captured Jeremy Mark Singh on Monday after a six-day search for the alleged attempted murder suspect.

Singh, 20, was wanted for several crimes, the most recent his alleged involvement in a Sept. 14 attempted murder in Canyon Country, said Sgt. Ron Price of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station. Singh and a group of five men allegedly attacked two teenagers, stabbing one repeatedly, Price said.

"This guy has been creating havoc in this community for some time. It's good to get him off the street," Lt. Steve Low said.

Deputies acting on a tip found Singh hiding at Laura Jean Mathis' Canyon Country apartment, Price said.

Mathis and Singh are friends, he said. Mathis denied any knowledge of Singh's whereabouts when she was questioned by deputies at her apartment Monday, Price said. She did let detectives search her apartment, and Singh was found in a closet and was arrested without incident, he said.

Mathis was also taken into custody and charged with harboring a criminal.

Singh was charged with attempted murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. He is due in Santa Clarita Superior Court today.

Mathis is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail and is due in Santa Clarita Superior Court Wednesday.
