A Canyon Country man was in custody after being arrested Thursday for allegedly choking a woman, a local sheriff’s deputy said.

Shortly after 4:30 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Department arrested a 21-year-old man on domestic violence charges, said Deputy Josh Dubin.

There were also two outstanding warrants for the man’s arrest; the suspect is expected to be charged with taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent and drug possession in relation to the outstanding warrants, Dubin said.

The arrest followed a 90-minute search in Canyon Country for the man after deputies received word that a Canyon Country woman was choked unconscious during an attack, Dubin confirmed.

Shortly after 3 p.m., Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s deputies received a 911 call for a woman being attacked by a man in an apartment on Manden Street between Vilna Avenue and Luther Drive behind the Edwards Canyon Country Stadium movie theaters, a sergeant said.

The 911 caller told deputies she witnessed a man choking a woman on the balcony of an apartment building on Manden.

The suspect fled into the theater shopping center but was captured 90 minutes later.
The victim was treated by paramedics.
