View Larger Map

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.


  1. Sounds like Bindulski had no brain activity before he committed the robbery.

  2. he did a david carradine.

  3. A rough way to go out, damn.

  4. lol @ roberto

    that deserved a rimshot

  5. That’s basically next door to the Northeast Division police station.

  6. It’s “hanged” himself – not “hung himself.

  7. The report fails to mention why the suspect was held at MDC.

    Was he placed there on an outstanding federal warrant?

    Or has a new law recently been placed in effect? – making a stick-up at a sexxe shoppe a federal offense?

  8. to those talking sh*t about this man,
    i grew up with kris. i always knew him to be a fun and decent person . everyone makes mistakes. but they don’t need idiots making fun of them. especially if they can’t even defend themselves. and believe me, if he was still here, he would have definitely defended himself. Oi!
