Woman Resents Insults To Her Mom
Witnesses tell Glendale police that Tangik Khodaverdian, 25, tried to run down Ludvig Gharabeigi, 32, twice on Saturday in a Smart and Final parking lot. She was traveling 30 miles per hour when she slammed her vehicle into Gharabeigi, pinning him against a wall.
Gharabeigi was taken to L.A. County USC Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries to his legs and back, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz tells KTLA.
Sgt. Lorenz said Gharabeigi was able to snap a picture of the vehicle's license plate with his cell phone during the attack. That's when he was struck a second time.
Witnesses say they tried to follow the vehicle as it fled, but were unsuccessful.
Police traced the license plate to Khodaverdian and found her at her home on Raymond Avenue. They also discovered hand prints and a foot print on the bumper and hood of her SUV that matched Gharabeigi.
Khodaverdian said she backed into him when she noticed he was taking a picture of her license plate and was afraid of him, police say. She was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Later, Khodaverdian admitted she was upset with Gharabeigi because he had insulted her mother, Sgt. Lorentz told KTLA.
