The suspects fled the scene, while the man was hospitalized. He has been unconscious so far.
LAPD worked with the FBI, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Interpol and the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office to bring the juvenile back to the United States.
Another suspect, identified by the LAPD as Robert Hovhannisyan, was not returned from Armenia by law enforcement because he did not assault the driver, according to the LAPD.
