An 81-year-old man was fatally struck in Glendale by a vehicle, which was driven away form the scene, police said Sunday.

Martiros Arutyunyan of Glendale was crossing Broadway at Belmont Street about 8 p.m. Saturday when he was struck by a late-model white sedan being driven by a female, according to Glendale police Sgt. Robert William.

Arutyunyan suffered serious head injuries and was pronounced dead at a hospital, the sergeant said.

“This investigation is still in the preliminary stages and investigators are hoping to find surveillance footage which will capture the suspect vehicle,” William said.

Police asked anyone with information about the crash urged to call Glendale police at (818) 548-4911. Witnesses can remain anonymous if they wish.
