(CNN)A man carrying an axe and a knife was arrested and charged in the slaying of a 100-year-old man who was found dead inside his home, Los Angeles police said.
Adam Dimmerman, 47, was already in custody when police charged him with murder.
That assault victim, who sustained minor injuries, and other residents in the area pointed the officers toward Dimmerman, who was arrested without incident, police said.
An hour later, patrol officers responded to another call in Encino after the fire department located an elderly man with multiple cuts and bruises inside his home.
The man, who police did not name in their news release, was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Friday, police said that Dimmerman had been charged with murder in the death of the elderly man.
Jason Shakib identified the slain man to CNN affiliate KABC as Youssef Mahboubian and told KABC that he is Mahboubian's grandson.
Shakib said Mahboubian's age was 102, differing from the police's statement.
I had no idea.
I had no idea there was a guy with a machete running around killing people. "
Mahboubian and his wife lived in Alonzo Place, a street in Encino, for 30 years, Shakib said.
"My wife is horrified to hear he was murdered by some axe-wielding psychopath," Shakib said.
Dimmerman has been charged with murder and is currently being held on bail set at $2 million.
