The man was behaving aggressively, after a while he took a knife from the kitchen and headed towards the owner of the house. The woman's 17-year-old son, who was nearby, rushed to her aid, stood in front of his mother and shielded her from the armed intruder. Out of revenge for his actions, the accused stabbed the teenager in the chest and inflicted injuries from which the victim died. After that, the intruder held the people in the house in place, not allowing them to leave or call an ambulance. In order to illegally deprive her of her liberty, he struck the owner of the house twice in the head with his fist and stabbed her in the leg with a knife. He also made death threats, waved a knife in front of people, and stabbed pieces of furniture. He then stabbed in the stomach his mother-in-law's friend, who was visiting her and tried to leave the house. After a while, the intruder became distracted, which allowed the daughter of the owner of the house to run out of the house and call the police. After that, the attacker left the victims and disappeared. A local police officer was the first to arrive at the scene and located the defendant, but the man resisted and hit the officer in the face with his head. The police officer stopped the attack and detained the intruder.     

Noting the heroism of the deceased schoolboy, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Ivanovich Bastrykin, ordered that the teenager be awarded posthumously.
