A truck driver rampaged through an apartment complex in Rancho Cucamonga, smashing several parked cars with his rig and trying to rape a pregnant woman before he was arrested, authorities said Thursday. David Aaron Berger, 32, of Yuma, Ariz., was arrested Wednesday night after he reportedly demolished a carport, tried to rape a 25-year-old, sexually battered a 37-year-old woman and tried to run down another resident. "We saw a huge diesel truck ramming into cars," said resident Leeann Russell.

Their families had been next-door neighbors and close friends in Armenia, and the Gumuryan brothers thought it would be a relaxing break to take Armen Shakhkaramyan to Big Bear on a fishing trip. "He didn't even have a chance to say any last words," Shakhkaramyan's grieving brother, Sarkis, said Thursday, struggling to make sense of his brother's slaying. "I just don't understand. They gave them the money, and they shot them anyway. Armen was asleep, and then he was dead."
