ARMENIAN MAN ARRESTED IN GLENDALE AFTER WEDDING BRAWL
- A Glendale based Armenian, who allegedly tried to elbow two police officers during a massive brawl at a banquet hall this weekend, could face battery and vandalism charges.
The man, Karpis Termendzyan, was arrested Saturday after police responded to a fight at a wedding celebration Saturday that broke out among more than 100 people, Glendalenewsspress.com reported. Police received calls from numerous witnesses at 11:52 p.m. about the brawl at Dream Palace banquet hall in the 500 block of East Broadway.
Termendzyan, 36, of Van Nuys, was arrested on suspicion of vandalism and battery after he allegedly spit on one officer and attempted to elbow two others, and later kicked in a rear window of a patrol car, said police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.
Another man, Spartak Karabedian, 22, also of Van Nuys, was detained for public drunkenness and released on Sunday, Lorenz added.
Witnesses also reported seeing several people wielding knives at the party, according to police reports.
Karabedian, who is on probation for assault with a deadly weapon, allegedly started the fight inside the banquet hall, according to police. But the details about the brawl remain unclear because partygoers have refused to talk to police about the incident, Lorenz said.
Attempts to reach the managers of the banquet hall were unsuccessful.
Some partygoers refused medical treatment and didn't want to press any charges, Lorenz said.
A 27-year-old man, who had blood stains on his shirt, reportedly told police he was struck on the lip and hit on the head with a chair.
Another man had blood all over his face due to a cut on his eyebrow, police reported.
