Resident of Primorsky Territory was convicted for a robbery of a disabled person

In Ussuriysk, the court passed a verdict on the defendant accused of a robbery attack on a disabled person.

Earlier, in August 2018, a 41-year-old resident of the village of Sergeevka applied to the duty-unit of the MIA of Russia Division for the city of Ussuriysk. The man reported a theft of money and a mobile phone from him.

An investigative team of the police division was sent to the scene. It was established that two days before the crime, the victim - a disability pensioner - came to the city of Ussuriysk to find housing and work. He settled temporarily with his friend. In the evening, a friend came to visit his host. The man, noticing the phone and money of the disabled person, began demanding for their transfer to him, threatening with violence. Finding a gas burner in the apartment and threatening with it, the offender stole the phone and money from the victim.

During the operational-search activities, police officers established the location and detained the suspect. He turned to be an unemployed, previously convicted 27-year-old local resident. At the police division, the detainee pleaded guilty to the crime. The stolen phone was returned to the owner. As for the cash, the suspect managed to spend it.

A criminal case was initiated against the citizen on the grounds of a crime stipulated by part 2 of Article 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation 'Robbery committed using an object as arms'. The suspect in the criminal case was taken to custody. As part of the investigation of the criminal case, the involvement of the defendant in the armed assault was proved. A sufficient evidence base was collected.

The Ussuriysky District Court found the defendant guilty of committing the crime and sentenced him to five years' imprisonment with serving the sentence in a high-security penal colony.
