Drunk St. Petersburg policeman beats two men and “tries to strangle” schoolboy
He allegedly showed the ID to the policemen, who arrived at the scene, and they did not detain him.
A drunk officer of the St. Petersburg Traffic Police Department, Oleg Aronov, beat two men on the road and “tried to strangle” a seventh grader in the town of Pushkin, the Leningrad Region, Fontanka writes.
According to eyewitnesses, the drunk man got out of a SsangYong car and attacked passers-by in the courtyard of the School No. 695 on Artilleriyskaya Street. He allegedly showed the ID to the policemen, who arrived at the scene, and they did not detain him. The attacker’s car was taken away by tow truck.
Fontanka writes that the car is registered in the name of a 67-year-old resident of Pushkin, who said that his former son-in-law, the Traffic Police officer Oleg Aronov, 36, is using the car. According to the interlocutor, after the divorce, the policeman refused to return the car to him. A source in the law enforcement confirmed to Fontanka that a member of the separate battalion of Traffic Police No. 5 had got involved in a brawl.
There are many posts about the Traffic Police on Oleg Aronov’s Vkontakte page, and on his profile photo the policeman steps foot on a detainee’s head. The “place of work” section indicates the MIA’s Main Directorate for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.
