MOSCOW, January 8 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow police in the district Yuzhnoye Butovo detained a 35-year-old Uzbek national, who is suspected of beating a 12-year-old schoolboy.
On January 6, a telephone message came from the hospital to the police that the teenager was hospitalized with the lower jaw fracture and brain concussion.
“The detectives found that the boy was playing snowballs with his friends and hit the janitor occasionally with the snowball at the courtyard of a Moscow school on Monday evening.

The criminal case was opened against the suspected hooligan under Article 112 Part 1 of the Russian Criminal Code for the deliberate moderate damage to health.
