“Three men were detained by operatives of the MIA of Russia Main Directorate for Criminal Investigation, together with colleagues from Moscow and the Moscow Region with the participation of the Rosgvardia, on suspicion of committing a robbery.
According to available information, four men approached a citizen of one of the neighboring countries near a residential building in the Sosenskoye settlement of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts of the capital. Threatening with an object similar to a knife and using physical force, they took more than one million rubles from the victim, and then disappeared in an unknown direction.
Investigators of the MIA of Russia Inter-Municipal Division “Kommunarsky” initiated a criminal case on the features of an offense stipulated by part 4 of Article 162 of the RF Criminal Code.
As a result of operational-search measures one of the suspects was detained in a cafe of the capital. Subsequently, the police identified two of his accomplices. It turned out that they had previously been detained on suspicion of robbery attacks in the Moscow Region and were remanded in custody.
Currently, investigative steps are being taken to establish the actual circumstances and possible accomplices in the unlawful activities,” said the official representative of the Russian MIA Irina Volk.
