A 49-year-old man identified as Sergey Matyushin has been arrested and detained by the police in Russia for allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl before stabbing her in the village of Bolshoe Kozino in Russia’s Nizhny Novgorod region.

According to reports, the suspect had spotted the victim Anastasia Guzhvina, 12, when he was cycling around the village while searching for a victim and had tracked her for several days before his attack.

Further reports revealed that Sergey followed Anastasia, studying the path she was taking home from school and on the 13 of May, he allegedly attacked the child in the woods, raped her and stabbed her to death with a knife.

The victims’ body was discovered several hours later after she was reported missing.

Forensics said she died from multiple knife wounds inflicted on her neck.

Police interviewed villagers and learned about a male stranger, who was seen riding a bicycle not far from the scene.

The man, captured by local CCTV cameras, was identified and found the next day after the crime.

During police interrogations, Matyushin, who was previously convicted for rape of a minor, confessed to the crime, police said.

A law enforcement spokesperson said: “The suspect, who is from the town of Zavolzhye, came to the village on a commuter train.

“Cycling around the village, he spotted the victim, followed her and attacked in a deserted place.

“The suspect confessed to the crime and was placed into custody.”
