The young man with the nickname "Boko from Noragyugh" assaulted correspondent of "Aravot" daily Nelly Grigoryan, pushed her around, used swear words, threatened her and left in an unknown direction with the journalist's camera.
The incident took place at the 7/25 polling station located at the Daniel Varuzhan school when the journalist witnessed how Boko was threatening the ANC proxy.
"That boy had held the ANC proxy against the wall and was convincing the proxy that he was from the opposition and that he wanted to have a couple of words with her. In other words, he was trying to take her out of the polling station. When I entered the polling station, I had the camera in my hand. I tried to take shots, but that boy saw me, left the proxy, grabbed me by the shoulders and started pushing me around. All the while he was screaming "who are you and who let you tape this."
According to the journalist, nobody from the polling station interfered. There were a couple of boys at the polling station who ran in the direction of Boko after the journalist said that her work had been interrupted.
"They returned with the camera, but the memory chip was gone," said Nelly Grigoryan.
A report was drawn up regarding the incident, but the electoral commission president refused to sign it.
