Arisman walked into the computer training business, asked a 26-year-old woman for real estate listings, pulled a gun and forced her into a back room, where he tied her up and sexually assaulted her.

Trinidad and his partner, Moriel, soon arrived with a delivery. Arisman confronted them, tied them with ropes and choked them to near unconsciousness.

Arisman then shot Trinidad in the heart.

The woman broke free, fought with Arisman and ran into the front office, where she alerted a parking officer outside.

Arisman ran, but was quickly arrested.

After jurors found him guilty of killing Trinidad, he looked at them and threatened: “I hate this government and the society that supports it. That means you. You are my enemies and I am justified in killing you. My only regret is that I didn’t get to kill more of you sorry bastards.”

Witness to a Rape Is Killed

The New York Times

April 27, 1997

A delivery man was shot to death and another was choked unconscious after they interrupted a lunch-hour sexual assault on a secretary on Friday.

A suspect, David Arisman, a 47-year-old parolee with a history of violence, was arrested shortly after the attack in this Los Angeles suburb, officials said.

The identities of the victims were withheld pending notification of their relatives, the authorities said today.

The attacks occurred shortly before noon at Answers, a small business that had opened four days earlier. Two men who were delivering furniture to the store either happened onto the attack or saw it through the window and tried to intervene, the business owner said. The 26-year-old secretary was hospitalized.
