The charges were brought after Vardanyan allegedly stalked Grigori Komissarchuk, 69, and Galina Komissarchuk, 64.
Vardanyan is otherwise known as Jet Set exclusive model Nickolay Petrov and is twice nominated at the upcoming GAYVN Awards for Best Group Scene and Best Threesome.
Gay blogger J.C. Adams reported on GayPornTimes.com that Vardanyan has allegedly admitted to detectives that he was hired for a fee of $2,000 to intimidate the couple into paying a debt. Reportedly, the suspect also stated that a discussion involving putting a “hit” on the couple had occurred also, for a fee of $20,000.
In December 2006, a man attacked Galina Komissarchuk with a hammer that broke into the couple’s home and then also assaulted her husband. At that time, they identified Vardanyan as the assailant from a police line-up.
Including that incident, there have been four violent assaults on Mr. And Mrs. Komissarchuk since that time, at their home in Florida and also in Brooklyn, N.Y., where they own another home. After one of the attacks, Vardanyan was arrested by New York police but then later released. Talent agency Fabscout Entertainment, which represents Vardanyan, was unavailable for comment by post time.
