"During the apprehension, a passenger of the car tried to escape but was arrested by patrol officers. He turned out to be previously convicted resident of Kremenchuk Tereshchenko. Another offender refused to surrender and took out an F1 grenade, threatening to use it," Troian wrote adding that after an hour and a half of negotiations the robber finally surrendered.
