Ufa police detain 3 abduction suspects
A group of friends beat the brother of a "thief", who had not stolen anything.
Ufa police detained three men of 19, 27 and 34 who had kidnapped a 30-year-old man two days earlier. He was beaten in the courtyard of his building, forced into the trunk of a VAZ-2107 and taken away. As the police found out, the trio wanted to punish the victim for something his 27-year-old brother allegedly had done - stolen money from one of the suspects. However, it turned out that the wife of one of the kidnappers had withdrawn the money from their card. The Ministry of Internal Affairs in Bashkortostan reported the news.
On August 12, the wife of the suspect, 34, told her husband that about 60 thousand rubles had disappeared from their account. The day before, the man was at a party in a rented apartment with a 27-year-old acquaintance and let him borrow his mobile phone for some reason. The man called two of his friends and began searching for the “thief”, but he only found his older brother and thought he would squeeze the money out of him.
Eventually, it turned out that the kidnapper’s wife transferred the money to another card so that her husband would not waste it on drinks. Meanwhile, the reason they could not find the alleged “thief” was that he had already been detained by the police on suspicion of shoplifting four bottles of alcohol in front of a sales assistant.
When the police chased the kidnappers' car, they initially tried to get away but then stopped the car and dispersed. Each of them was detained, and the kidnapped man was released. A criminal case has been instituted against the abductors (item (a), (c), (h), part 2 of Art. 126 of the Criminal Code), said the regional department of the ICR.
