A man who was arrested for allegedly robbing a Glassell Park sex shop last died after he hung himself in his jail cell, police said. Kristopher Bindulski was hospitalized on Dec. 5 after employees at the Metropolitan Detention Center found he had hung himself. Bindulski, who had no brain activity and was placed on a life support, was pronounced dead two days later.
Lt. Steven Flores with the Northeast Division said Bindulski was arrested on Dec. 2 following a robbery at Romantix, a San Fernando Road sex shop, which is located on the same block at the Northeast police station. “He was arrested shortly after the crime a short distance away,” Flores said. No information was immediately available about what was taken during the robbery.
Authorities are conducting an investigation into Bindulski’s death.
