Walking home from a party in April, Haik Oganyan and a friend became victims of a street robbery that turned deadly."Oganyan had left the party with a friend and began walking west on Gresham Street toward their car," explained the Daily News. "Three men described as Hispanics with shaved heads demanded their wallets and keys. The victims complied, but the suspects attacked Oganyan and their friend anyway. The friend suffered stab wounds but survived. The friend broke free and ran back to the Corbin address. The suspects, meanwhile, disappeared, leaving Oganyan on the grass, bleeding from the neck." A $50,000 reward has been offered by the city and police are asking that anyone with information, call Devonshire homicide detectives during business hours Monday through Friday at (818) 832-0609. After hours, call (877) 527-3247.
