One of such attacks took place in Dec. 2015 in the town of Chasiv Yar in the vicinity of Bakhmut. The bandits followed a family and studied their daily routine for a long time, collecting information from the neighbors. They broke into the apartment where a young woman with a year-old baby was at the time. They tied up the mother, stole the money and golden jewelry, and fled. The child was crying in an arena, while the woman was not able to escape.
The officers managed to apprehend two perpetrators of the crime. One of them had been hiding in Russia and was stopped at the border while trying to get in the Luhansk region. Another one was constantly changing the place of residence. The police tracked him in Melekine in the Donetsk region, where he moved from Kyiv.
The criminals confirmed the testimony of other band members and admitted committing a series of robberies and other crimes.
