A Castaic tow-truck driver charged with kidnapping and four other offences has been scheduled to appear in San Fernando Superior Court on Monday.

Armik Sohrabian, 44, who is charged with kidnapping for ransom, kidnapping, second-degree robbery, criminal threats and false imprisonment by violence, appeared briefly in court Friday for what was to have been the first day of his preliminary hearing.

Witnesses scheduled to testify Friday did not appear in court as planned.

Sohrabian’s preliminary hearing is now set to begin Monday.

His charges stem from a June incident that allegedly occurred in his home.

Sohrabian is being held at Pitchess Detention Center East Facility on $1-million bail.

Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, meanwhile, continue to look for a Glendale man in connection with the same kidnapping.

A $1.3-million arrest warrant has been issued for Akop Kirakosyan, 55, in connection with the same June crime.

Kirakosyan is facing several felony charges, including kidnapping for ransom, kidnapping, second-degree robbery, criminal threats and false imprisonment by violence and assault with a deadly weapon, authorities said two weeks ago.
