Valencia Assault Suspect Arrested After Injuring Former Employer

A Valencia assault suspect was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly sent his former employer to the hospital after injuring her during a physical fight.

Around 9 a.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to a business on the 25500 block of Avenue Stanford in Valencia regarding a possible domestic violence incident, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

However, when deputies arrived on scene, they learned the parties involved were not in a relationship.

“Upon arrival, deputies learned the victim was physically assaulted by a former employee…, during a verbal argument,” Arriaga said.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for evaluation regarding her injuries, according to officials.

Vilen Kirakosyan, 29, from Sun Valley was arrested on a felony count of assault with a deadly weapon, his hands being the weapon, Arriaga added.

Kirakosyan was arrested and transported to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station jail with bail set at $30,000, according to arrest records.

About Louie Diaz

Louie was born and raised in Santa Clarita. At the age of two Louie lost his vision due to a brain tumor. However, Louie doesn't let blindness stop him from doing what ever it is he wants to accomplish. Growing up some of his favorite hobbies were wood working, fishing and riding bikes. Louie graduated from College of the Canyon in December of 2017, with a Broadcast Journalism degree. Growing up Louie has always wanted to be a fire fighter or a police officer, but because of his blindness Louie knew that wouldn't work. Louie has always loved listening to police and fire radio traffic, using a scanner, and he figured if he was going to listen to the scanner so much, he should do something with it.
