ST. PETERSBURG (SPT) â€” A Kenyan man was hospitalized in a critical condition after he was attacked in St. Petersburg last week.
The man suffered wounds to his head and body, Interfax reported.
A day later, police detained a 39-year-old suspect, who allegedly attacked the Kenyan citizen in order to help the owner of a store reclaim debts owed to him by the Kenyan man.
The man attacked the Kenyan with a baseball bat and then disappeared.
The motive for the crime was the Kenyan’s failure to pay back a debt owed to the store owner, according to the city’s investigative committee.
