As a result of operational-search activities, officers of the Criminal Investigation Administration of the MIA of Russia GA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, together with colleagues from the Vasileostrovsky District, detained a suspect in a robbery attack on a bank branch on Bolshoy Prospect of the Vasilyevsky Island.
The previous night, an attacker in a medical mask ran into the office of the financial institution. Threatening the employee, he handed out a note demanding to give him money, stole more than a million rubles and fled from the scene. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident.
