Man Who Allegedly Attacked Real Estate Agent in Moment Caught on Camera Is Arrested
Alen Karaboghosian, 45, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Alen Karaboghosian, 45, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after the attack on the female realtor, who did not want to be identified, was caught on home surveillance footage.
The realtor said Karaboghosian attacked her during an open house in Encino Sunday. She added that she thought she was going to die.
"I think he would have raped me, that's number one, and he would've killed me,” she told Inside Edition.
The woman said she recognized the man from a previous open house and became suspicious, so she moved their conversation to the porch.
There, he pushed her into the bushes, and she said he grabbed her chest and tried to take her necklace before running off.
The attack left her with bruises and cuts. Video of the attack shows the man take off his hat and look at the surveillance camera more than once.
Since the attack, two other real estate agents have come forward to say they were also attacked by the man in separate incidents at open houses in Encino, according to reports.
One of the women said she called police after the incident, which took place in February, CBS News reported.
“He kind of freaked me out,” she said. “He left and came back to give me an orange. As he came back to give me the orange, he hugged me and then his hand went over my breast, and it really freaked me out.”
Karaboghosian’s bail has been set at $130,000.
