MMA fighter Gontarev robs resident of Chelyabinsk “for the sake of children”
Together with the accomplice, the athlete allegedly wanted to open a sports and patriotic center for teenagers.
MMA fighter Yevgeny Gontarev, nicknamed Bison and his friend from Mari El Stanislav, 25, who were detained yesterday for assault, called the reason for their illegal behavior: they allegedly wanted to open a sports and patriotic center for teenagers. There was no money, so Gontarev decided to choose an easy but illegal path, MK reports.
The police and the SOBR came to the athlete’s birthday party on a tip from Stanislav, who was taken in the morning of November 15. According to the man, it was Gontarev who in early November asked to go to the Domodedovo District, where the robbery of Chelyabinsk resident Vadim, 30, took place. They stole a Hummer N3, 30,000 rubles ($ 450), three smartphones and a gold chain. Stanislav at this time was sitting at the wheel of the car.
Law enforcement officials suspect that Vadim is not the only victim of Gontarev's criminal group.
