The random attack just seems totally senseless.
Last Thursday at about 11:50 a.m, police were called to a home in Encino.
Adam Dimmerman, forty-seven was arrested and taken into custody for assault with a deadly weapon.
But hours later, police were called to another nearby residence where a man had been found with "numerous contusions and lacerations inside his residence."
The victim, Yousseff Mahboubianfard, 102, was found in his garage, having been stabbed to death.
Dimmerman, who was already in police custody, was charged with murder with a $2 million bail. Police have not yet released a motive.
"I thought he fell," his grandson, Jason Shakib, told KABC. "I had no idea. They told me he fell in the garage and my cousin came home and found him."
"I just thought he slipped and fell because he was an older man. I had no idea there was a guy with a machete running around killing people."
"There's no reason for it," neighbor Peter Maranian agreed. "There's no explanation. You see a man that's gone through a lot in his life and he's gone through COVID as well, and now this happens to him. It's really very sad."
