LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles police have detained a suspect in the brutal stabbing death of a 68-year-old taxi driver.
The suspect has not been formally arrested and booked yet, so his name was not immediately available, LAPD Sgt. Anthony Costello said.
Oganes Papazyan of Burbank was killed Friday evening in the parking lot of a Burger King restaurant at Grand and Cesar E. Chavez avenues.
Officers responded to the area after a call from the fire department requesting backup. When officers arrived on scene they say a crowd had gathered around the area.
Papazyan died at the scene. An autopsy was pending, coroner's officials said. A motive for the attack is not known.
