A suspected pedophile who jumped out of a third-floor window to escape police has been left paralyzed after breaking his spine.
The 29-year-old chef was taking part in a police reconstruction of the alleged crime when he took the opportunity to flee through the window.
Police took the suspect in Moscow to an apartment where he allegedly ‘sexually abused’ an 11-year-old girl.
As police were constructing the crime scene re-enactment with the man, they took his handcuffs off to facilitate a more detailed study what happened to the girl.
Seizing the opportunity to escape, the suspect jumped out of the third-floor window. But when the man landed on the ground, he broke his spine, according to reports.
The suspect has been seeking to escape from police, law enforcement sources said. The pedophile suspect, an immigrant from Kyrgyzstan, was rushed to hospital with severe spinal injuries.
