The incident occurred on September 18 at about 1am on Arkhangelsksky Lane.
On the night of September 18, a 41-year-old former employee of Federal Penitentiary Service, a retired Ministry of Internal Affairs officer and a 30-year-old employee of a private security company, who were patrolling the building of the Russian Union of Rights Holders, saw four men of Caucasus origin hitting on two young women. After a verbal skirmish, the Caucasians attacked the guards with knives. One of the interceders was stabbed in the stomach. The second, in addition to many wounds, got his ear cut off.
All this time the women were screaming loudly, which caught the attention of passers-by. When some of them flocked to the spot, the attackers ran away. Both the security guards were taken to the Sklifosovsky Institute in critical condition. The man who lost his ear is in a coma. The doctors said it is impossible to put the ear back.
The attackers were about 25 years old. They were wearing denim jackets and jeans. One of them was bold and wearing a suit.
