MOSCOW, December 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The robbers attacked a businessman, beat him up and seized seven million roubles from him in south-eastern Moscow on Friday afternoon, the Moscow law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The robbers attacked the man, when the latter came out from the bank in Smirnovskaya Street, where he got a big sum of money.
“The robbers knocked the man senseless from the back, grabbed a bag with money and escaped in the car. The robbery victim claimed that the criminals had robbed him of seven million roubles,” a source in the Moscow law enforcement agencies said.
Meanwhile, the press service of the Moscow police department confirmed a report about the robbery without specifying on the sum of stolen money. “The robbery victim called the police in the evening staying in the hospital. The search measures are being taken to detain the criminals,” the source said.
The police reported that over ten robberies of people, who received big sums of money at the financial institutions (banks, cash desks and automated telling machines), were committed in Moscow and the Moscow Region for the last five days. The police directly link a growing number of such crimes with coming New Year holidays.
The law enforcement agencies ask people to be particularly attentive and show vigilance in the process of cashing in the financial institutions and making major buys.
The Moscow police department reported earlier that the crime situation always becomes tenser on the holidays in the city. First, this is linked with the fact that the gangs of visiting robbers are becoming more active ahead of the holidays in the Russian capital.
