In the city of Kyshtym (Chelyabinsk region), suspects were detained in a daring attack on an elderly man. The guys entered the pensioner’s house and stabbed him in the stomach, the press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Chelyabinsk Region reports on the telegram channel.
“In Kyshtym, police detained suspects in a robbery. The incident occurred in the victim’s house in the village of Taiginka,” the department’s press service clarified.
The elderly couple were at home, but their door was not locked. Two unknown guys took advantage of this. They entered the house, where they began to threaten with a knife and demand money and car keys. The elderly man refused to give them what they wanted, so one of the guys stabbed him in the stomach. The attackers fled in an unknown direction, throwing away the knife at a neighboring house.
As a result of operational activities, the identity of the attackers and their location were established. The suspects turned out to be 29-year-old and 34-year-old local residents who had previously been convicted. A criminal case has been initiated under Part 4 of Article 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Robbery”). The attacker is in a temporary detention center. A further preventive measure is chosen.
Previously, Chelyabinsk security forces were searching for two repeat offenders who attacked a pensioner. The entire police department was focused on their capture.
