Man indicted for robbing elderly who pulled cash from bank

The Tel Aviv District Attorney today in the District Court indicted Roman Arbakov (28) of Bat Yam and Roman Abshelomov (34) of Tel Aviv for conspiracy to commit crime, robbery in a gang, and also against Absholomov for disrupting court proceedings, interfering with a police officer in his duty, and threats.

The defendants spotted the complainant making a cash withdrawal from a bank and followed him on his way home until he reached his building's stairwell, when they knocked him down and took his wallet containing about NIS 8,000 and a credit card, and fled the scene. In addition, Avshalomov is accused of disrupting proceedings for threatening Arbakov and beating him so he would not tell of the incident to anyone as well as interfering with the officer in his duty by continually cursing and threatening the officer.
