An employee of a payment terminal service company applied to the territorial police office and reported that two strangers ran up to his vehicle when he stopped at the traffic light. They broke the glass with a lump hammer and tried to rob the corporate money in the amount of over one million roubles from the car.

In the result of operative-searching measures, the policemen detained one of the suspects. He is a previously convicted native of South Caucasus. The court remanded him in custody.
