Hit & Run Driver Receives Probation for Killing Pedestrian Media Contact: Sgt. Dan Suttles 818-548-3140 Glendale, CA – On April 16, 2016 at approximately 8:00 pm, 81 year old Martiros Arutyunyan of Glendale was legally crossing Broadway at the intersection of Belmont Street when he was struck by a white sedan. The pedestrian sustained head injuries and later died at the hospital. The striking vehicle fled the scene and was described by teenage eyewitnesses as a white newer sedan with paper plates driven by a female. After a very extensive investigation, Glendale Traffic Investigators arrested 67 year old Goar Davtyan of Glendale, on May 13, 2016 for Felony Hit & Run and Felony Vehicular Manslaughter. Ms. Davtyan’s daughter, 41 year old Alina Davtyan of Glendale, was also arrested for Accessory to a Crime and filing a false insurance claim. On September 20, 2017, Goar Davtyan was charged with one count of Felony Hit and Run Causing Death. Alina Davtyan was charged with one felony count for filing a False Insurance Claim and Accessory to a Crime after the Fact by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. On October 19, 2017, Goar Davtyan was sentenced to three years’ formal probation, 720 hours community service and ordered to pay $300.00 to the Victim’s Restitution Fund. Alina Davtyan was sentenced to three years’ summary probation, 30 days community service and ordered to pay $300.00 to the Victims’ Restitution Fund. “Our investigators did an outstanding job with this investigation. When involved in a collision of any kind, always remain at the scene. It just makes it so much worse when people panic and flee the scene,” said Sgt. Craig Tweedy. It takes a car over half the distance of a football field to stop when traveling 35 mph with a 2 second perception and reaction time. Both drivers and pedestrians need to account for that distance to prevent a tragic collision.”

The Glendale Police Department Project Lifesaver is featured in this in-depth video, "Lost in L.A. County - Bringing the wanderers home." The Glendale Police Department Project Lifesaver is a program that locates “at risk” individuals with cognitive disorders who are at constant risk to the life threatening behavior of wandering, including those with Alzheimer’s disease, Autism and Down syndrome. Project Lifesaver has over 1,600 participating agencies throughout 50 states in the United States, Canada and Australia, and has performed over 3,000 searches over the last 15 years with no serious injuries or fatalities ever reported. The participants in the program are equipped with a wrist or ankle band that contains a battery operated transmitter with a designated frequency that can be picked up and tracked by the Glendale Police Department in the event a participant goes missing or wanders off. Project Lifesaver has provided in-depth training to Glendale Police Officers on the use of the specialized electronic search and rescue equipment, as well as teaching rescuers how to communicate with individuals afflicted with cognitive conditions, all of which are essential to the successful rescue of missing persons who wander or otherwise become lost.

The Glendale Police Department would like to wish everyone a safe and spooky Halloween. During Trick-Or-Treating - Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. - Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. - Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run across the street. - Teach children to make eye contact with more drivers if possible before crossing in front of them. - Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. - Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings. - Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. - Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups. - Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors. - Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision. - Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers. - When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls. - Wait until you get home to sort, check, and eat your treats. Drive Extra Safe on Halloween - Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. - Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs. - Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. - Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings. - Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances. - Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., so be especially alert for kids during those hours. If you have any questions, please contact the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911.

If you are involved in a hit and run accident, GPD WILL FIND YOU! It is not worth going to jail,…

If You Are Involved in a Hit and Run Accident, GPD WILL FIND YOU! The Glendale Police Department is hunting down all hit and run vehicles. Below is an example of great team work involving a victim of a hit and run and traffic investigators. On 10-06-17, a parked car was sideswiped in the 1300 block of Cordova. A neighbor heard the sound of a crash, immediately looked outside and saw an older female driving away from the location in a red Toyota Prius. The days following the collision, the victim walked around her neighborhood and saw a red Prius in a driveway around the corner from her house. At that time, it was unknown if that was the same vehicle involved in the hit and run. On 10-25-17, Investigators from the Traffic Division located the red Prius and spoke with the owner of the vehicle. At the conclusion of the investigation, it was determined the female driver committed the hit and run. The case will be presented to the District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration.
