Less than a week after Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared an all-out assault on the city's most violent gangs, police from a newly formed task force have arrested 64 people in some of the San Fernando Valley's most dangerous neighborhoods.

Officers from the 50-member violent-crime task force have stopped about 110 suspects over the past five days in the Valley, arresting 64 on charges ranging from narcotics and weapons possession to auto theft.
