An iPad-snatching crime had local sheriff’s deputies looking for a robbery suspect in Newhall on Wednesday, a law enforcement official said.

A man on a bicycle snatched an iPad carried by a girl walking in the area of Costa Brava near Valle Del Oro east of Newhall Avenue about 1 p.m. Wednesday, said Lt. Mark Hershey of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

The girl was not injured, he said.

The suspect grabbed the iPad and took off with it on his bicycle, but he dropped it when the girl started screaming.
“This was a strong-arm robbery because he took it by force,” Hershey said.

No weapon was seen.

Deputies combed the Newhall area looking for the suspect, he said.
