According to the news site, the victim participated and was returning from the rally when he was accosted by four men, which the site claims belong to the so-called "anti-state" political sphere.

The victim sustained four stab wounds in the back and hands after being cornered in a betting parlor. The injuries were non-life-threatening, and the man was treated and released from a local hospital.

Two men, 22 and 33, were arrested in relation to the attack, while two suspects fled the scene.
