Moscow: masked armed men abduct 2, steal 2.000.000 rubles
Amber alert was announced to track the car and catch the criminals.
A group of armed individuals in balaclava masks kidnapped two people in northeastern Moscow and took them to an industrial zone, where they stole 2 million rubles ($35.300) from them, the Moscow department of the Interior Ministry told Moskva news agency.
On the evening of January 11, eyewitnesses turned to the police reporting an incident on Molodtsova Street. It turned out that "four unknown persons wearing balaclavas forced a Moscow businessman and an unemployed man into a Honda threatening them with items that looked like automatic rifles, and took the victims to an industrial zone, Yasny Passage."
Having inflicted bodily injuries of unknown gravity on the kidnapped men, the attackers took away 2 million rubles from them and left.
Amber alert was announced to track the car and catch the criminals, but there has been no information about their detention yet.
The founder and president of the Izhevsk football club Gazovik-Gazprom, known today as Zenit-Izhevsk, and the oldest professional football player in Russia has been detained for 48 hours, until the lawyers provide documents confirming that the accused cannot be kept in a pre-trial detention center on medical grounds.
