Senseless Stabbing Of Shop Worker By Thief

Senseless Stabbing Of Shop Worker By Thief

Russian detectives have described as senseless the brutal killing of a young woman after she was stabbed through the heart when she tried to stop an armed robber from stealing a new mobile phone at an electronics store.

CCTV images of the attack at the store in the city of Vladivostok, in the south-eastern Russian province of Primorsky Krai, show how the man whose face is covered by a hood enquires about one of the phones and asks to take a closer look.

But as the sales assistant goes to open the glass cabinet, the man tries to steal the case and help himself, and the young woman, apparently unaware that he is carrying a knife fights back.

The shocking video then shows how the man repeatedly stabbed her although the knife is not clear on the footage, but the blood stains that quickly end up smeared across the floor are apparent.

The robber, described as around 180-185 cm in height and with a slim build, then fled leaving the young woman dead.

Police spokesman Nathan Vasiliev said: "The killing was completely senseless because the attacker left empty-handed with absolutely nothing. The victim that he had stabbed died even though an ambulance was on the scene in less than two minutes. She had been stabbed through the heart, and died almost instantly."

Police are appealing for anybody that might have information that leads to the identity of the attacker.
