For three days women in Petrozavodsk, Karelia, Russia were afraid to go outside alone. Husbands were picking up their wives from work to ensure that they were safe and parents stopped letting childred wander around alone. That’s because a 28-year-old man identified only as Anton was terrorizing the city. The first victim was attacked last week. The man cut her throat but she somehow managed to get away and survived. The second victim was a 20-year-old female who was found dead near a hostel on September 19, 2018, she had had her throat cut also. The 27-year-old girl in the photos below was found dead on September 20, he had stabbed her multiple times. Anton also tried to kill 5 others by slashing their throats, all survived but remain in the hospital while they recover. Apparently, this is not the first time Anton has done something like this. 9 years ago.. he attacked a girl that refused to go on a date with him. He also cut her throat. He was imprisoned off and on through the years for different violent crimes and the last time he was released from prison was only a year and a half ago. Anton became a suspect when witnesses caught him close to one of the crime scenes covered in blood. He told the witnesses that he had cut his hand on a bottle. He is now in police custody and faces life imprisonment if convicted of the crimes.
