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 retired security official and two of his subordinates are suspected of an attempt to receive 31.5 million rubles ($470,610) from a construction company for its participation in the corporation’s tender.
Early in August, criminal ‘authority’ Yuri Esin a.k.a. Samosval (Dump Truck) has been detained in Moscow. In the 1990s he had a reputation of the ‘godfather’ of ‘Russian mafia’ in Italy and faced 75 years behind bars. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how could the 67-year-old criminal ‘authority’ having close ties with many thieves-in-law escape the Italian justice 20 years ago and avoid any issues with the Russian law enforcement authorities up until his recent arrest.
