American Citizen Arrested in Moscow for Sexually Assaulting a Minor

Russia's Investigative Committee is now involved in the case of an American citizen accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl in Moscow, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported.

"Investigators intend to ask the court to arrest an American citizen suspected of pedophilia," Investigative Committee official Yulia Ivanova said on Tuesday. 

Earlier the Investigative Committee had announced the detention of an American citizen who was suspected of assaulting the girl in the elevator of a residential building on Nov. 1. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
