Demanding beer, Russians threaten to bomb shop
Two men in Russia's St. Petersburg have been held for allegedly robbing beer from a shop by threatening the shop assistant with a hand grenade.
"After they got two beer bottles, the men put the grenade on the counter and ran off," a police spokesman said Monday.
The two were detained soon afterwards. This was the second time a grenade was used in the city in recent days. Last week, a man set off a hand grenade in a conflict, leaving one man injured.
