A female reporter for Radio Liberty, Elina Chilingaryan, says that one of a group of young men outside the Erebuni 12/33 polling station attacked her as she was taking pictures.

Chilingaryan claims the youth hit her and snatched the camera after it fell during the scuffle.

The reporter then informed the police who told her that they would most likely launch a criminal investigation.

She says that the driver of a commuter minivan parked nearby told her that they had been ferrying passengers to the polling station.
