VLADIVOSTOK, April 5 (Itar-Tass) — Vladivostok police are looking for a man who has attacked and robbed three women. "The attacker strikes at dusk as a rule; he ambushes the victim," the press service of the Primorye Territory police said.
Police believe he is not a maniac but a cruel serial robber. The first attack occurred late in the evening of March 19. The robber stabbed a 60-year-old pensioner. She was rushed to hospital but medics failed to save her.
On the same day, an unidentified man attacked a 30-year-old kindergarten educator, stabbing her several times and taking 500 roubles from her. The last victim was a 25-year-old woman returning home late in the evening. She is in an IT ward now. The attacker stole her bag.
All the attacks occurred in Vladivostok's Pervomaisky district.
Detectives composed an identikit of the suspect. He's aged 20 to 25, with a slim build. He was clad in a dark jacket, and wore black trousers and a knitted black cap.
