Local news

Four hammer-wielding men robbed the Undisputed Sole store in the Westfield Valencia Town Center mall in Santa Clarita on Thursday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The burglary was reported at 3:35 a.m., according to Deputy Mesa of the Sheriff’s Department.

Four men used hammers to smash through the front door and steal merchandise, Mesa added.

One of the store’s owners, Erwin Santos, said the thieves may have made off with as much as $40,000 worth of goods.

“We’re a small business trying to make a living, and they come here, taking everything from us,” he said.

As of Friday evening, no arrests have been made.
