ST. PETERSBURG, January 24 (Itar-Tass) —— The main suspect in the death of a 15-year-old boy who died of beating by the police is district officer Lt. Denis Ivanov, 24. The St. Petersburg Nevsky District Court authorized his arrest on Tuesday.
Charges against Ivanov have not been brought, which makes the arrest period indefinite. “If the charges are brought within ten days, he will be put under two months of arrest,” Sergei Kapitonov from the St. Petersburg city department of the Russian Investigation Committee said.
The media was barred from the court meeting at which Presiding Judge Yelena Alexeyeva authorized the arrest of Ivanov. The officer’s lawyer refused from comment before the court hearing.
The incident happened early on Sunday morning, the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region police department told Itar-Tass. According to the preliminary reports, the teenager attacked a 45-year-old woman near 12, Shotman Street in the Nevsky district, grabbed her bag and started running. The woman’s shouts caught attention of a police patrol, which captured the boy.
The boy was taken to the 75the police department. He felt unwell approximately ten minutes after the detention and died on an ambulance. The police alleged they did not put the boy into a cell due to his young age.
A criminal case was opened on Monday for premeditated heavy physical harm leading to death by negligence.
