The Chairman of the Investigative Committee instructed the Head of the Moscow Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia A.A. Strizhov to reclassify the actions of the attackers on the man and child in New Moscow to attempted murder due to the fact that a number of media outlets, according to the victim, began to spread information that the attackers were in possession of a bladed article. Earlier, it was reported that the two men who had taken part in the attack had been detained.
Also, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed to transfer the criminal case materials for further investigation from the territorial investigative body to Directorate I on Major Crimes Investigation of the Moscow Regional Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia.
The attackers beat the man and also endangered the life and health of a young child with their actions. The Chairman of the Investigative Committee has instructed his subordinates to take measures to provide psychological assistance to the child who witnessed the beating and to establish whether he was injured by attackers.
In addition, A.I. Bastrykin ordered that the suspects be checked for involvement in similar crimes. The Chairman of the Investigative Committee also instructed the heads of the Moscow Main Investigation Department to apply for remand in custody as a preventive measure for the detainees. Upon instruction of the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia A.I. Bastrykin, the further investigation will be supervised by the Central Office of the Investigative Committee.
