In Dnipro, cameraman of website “Informator” bitten by disgruntled visitor

25.05.2017, 23:26

In Dnipro, the editorial office of the information agency “Informator” was visited by two people who started threatening the staff, and in the fight that followed one of the agency’s cameramen was injured. The incident took place on May 24, as reported at the agency's website.

The man and his mother demanded the journalists to refute preliminary information that he allegedly was arrested as he was driving and was allegedly intoxicated by drugs (he refused to get through medical examination). This information was received by the agency from the police.

The man was behaving aggressively, and cameraman Yevhen Vahner ended up blocking the man's approach to his colleague Victoria Mashkina. They ended up going down to the floor struggling, and the aggressive visitor bit the cameraman's arm. The police opened a proceeding based on this incident.
