No charges filed in fatal stabbing over ‘disrespect’


first_img “Everybody knew everybody,” Coblentz said. “It’s a senseless murder. Over disrespect and pride, someone’s going to lose their life over that? It just doesn’t make sense.” Police said the case began when an argument escalated into a dispute among a group of acquaintances. Polisadzhyan was treated by paramedics at scene and taken to a local hospital where he died.

VAN NUYS – Citing a lack of evidence, prosecutors declined to file charges against two males who were arrested in connection with last month’s stabbing death of a 19-year-old man in a case police said started when one person disrespected another. Rudolf Mekhakian, 20, and a 17-year-old male were freed after being booked in connection with the slaying of Abraham Polisadzhyan, who was among a group of nine Armenian males gathered in a parking lot Nov. 5 on the southeast corner of Woodman Avenue and Vanowen Street to settle an argument, police said. The teen’s name was withheld because he is a minor, officials said. They were arrested Nov. 29, after being identified by witnesses to the murder, said Los Angeles Police Detective Mike Coblentz. Police said the incident went down when two suspects pulled up in a Lexus or Infiniti, got out of the car and then one of them stabbed Polisadzhyan before both suspects got back in the car and disappeared, Coblentz said. Neither a vehicle nor a weapon has been recovered, Coblentz said.last_img
