Prosecutors charged two Glendale men on Friday for assaulting a homeless man, officials said.
Oganes Manvelyan, 23, and Vahan Kiourktzian, 22, each face one count of assault with a deadly weapon in Wednesday's alleged attack on the homeless man, according to Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney. She said the alleged attack came for no apparent reason.
The pair initially claimed the homeless man began harassing them, but a police investigation revealed that was not true, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
They later told police that they were "young" and "didn't know why they did it, but it was stupid," Lorenz added.
