According to the regional ICR, the conflict between two visitors of a cafe in the center of Khabarovsk occurred at around 7:00 a.m. on August 20.
During the fight, a man born in 1992 inflicted several blows to the man born in 1985. As a result of the craniocerebral injury, the victim died in hospital. Later, it turned out that the deceased was a well-known Khabarovsk athlete.
According to Komsomolskaya Pravda, the conflict took place outside Galereya cafe. CCTV video shows people dressed as guards quietly watching. Without trying to intervene, even when the attacker goes in for kill with several blows to the head of the knocked-own victim.
The offender managed to escape from the crime scene, but he has been identified. According to preliminary data, he is from the Caucasus.
The ICR investigation bodies in the Khabarovsk region have initiated a criminal case on the grounds of crime under part 4 of Art. 111 of the Russian Criminal Code (Deliberate infliction of grievous bodily harm, which by negligence caused the death of the victim).
The suspect in the case is yet to be captured it would seem. Such a pointless fight in a moment of anger has cost one man his life and another likely his freedom for some time. It’s always sad to see people standing around not helping in these situations.
RIP Andrey Drachev, and lets hope the police catch this guy soon.
