Chrome Telescopic Nunchaku Description
These Chrome Telescopic Nunchaku are a great addition to your Nunchaku collection, a really popular weapon and great fun to train with. They move great in your hands and easy to carry around with you. They pack down to a third of their extended length and pack comfortably into the carry case that comes with it. They grip perfectly when extended and don’t collapse. They swing great in your hand and have a smooth movement.
When fully extended they are slightly longer than the standard Nunchaku length at 14″. This means the Chrome Telescopic Nunchaku swing slightly slower in the air than the norm. It quite a good thing really as it means less chance to get hit by the metal nunchaku, or at least more time to get out of the way. Also being hollow they make a slight swooshing sounds when moving through the air. On the outer section of the Nunchaku is a built in grip which sticks to your hand really well when spinning the Nunchaku.
Packing down small, the Chrome Telescopic Nunchaku come with their own case which means they can be kept safe when you’re carrying them around to friends house or training class for Nunchaku practice sessions. It also stops them getting knocked or bashed and helps keep them looking fresh and new for longer.
A great set of Nunchaku, slightly different to the norm and a perfect addition to any collection.

“When extending the Chrome telescopic nunchaku, don’t pull them too hard, as you’ll have trouble getting them back in again. Also make sure you are comfortable with your abilities as the telescopic function loses you a bit of balance.”

San Diego military vets challenge California’s weapon ban on batons
SAN DIEGO —
A recent wave of court decisions around the country has recognized the constitutional right of citizens to possess arms such as daggers, nunchucks and Tasers for self-defense, and now a pair of San Diego military veterans is challenging California’s ban on another weapon: the baton.
Striking weapons such as billy clubs, blackjacks, leaded canes and saps — described in a 1923 San Diego Union story as “weapons of the holdup man or thug” — have been outlawed in some form or other in the state since at least 1917.
“The Legislature obviously sought to condemn weapons common to the criminal’s arsenal,” a California appellate court wrote about the ban of such weapons in a 1965 ruling.
The law’s only exception extends to peace officers and certain licensed security guards who obtain a state baton permit.
The current law, retooled in 2012, makes possession, importation, sale and manufacture of such weapons a “wobbler,” meaning prosecutors can charge it either as a misdemeanor or felony.
While the law doesn’t explicitly define a billy, courts have determined it to be any kind of stick, bat or baton that is intended to be used as a weapon — even the common baseball bat or table leg would qualify if it is meant to hurt someone else.
A lawsuit filed in San Diego federal court last week argues the ban violates the Second Amendment.
Russell Fouts, an honorably discharged Marine who works as a project manager for a security contractor in San Diego, argues in the lawsuit that the ban prevents him from legally buying and possessing a police-style side-handle baton and expandable baton “to protect himself, his home, his family and business.”
Fouts was licensed in Oregon to carry a baton in his role as a private security contractor. Additionally, a 1980 Oregon Supreme Court decision found possession of a billy club in the home is constitutional, describing the weapon as “the first personal weapon fashioned by humans.”
His co-plaintiff is Tan Miguel Tolentino, an honorably discharged airman who carried a baton as a law enforcement specialist in the U.S. Air Force. Tolentino now works as an information technology specialist.
Second Amendment attorney Alan Beck, who filed the lawsuit with Mississippi-based co-counsel Stephen Stamboulieh, said the time was ripe for such a challenge.
Beck has been part of a recent effort that has secured court victories in multiple states allowing possession of stun gun-type weapons, including cases in Michigan, Maryland, New Orleans, New Jersey and New York.
An attorney friend of his in 2018 successfully challenged New York’s ban on nunchucks, with the federal district court finding the martial arts weaponry are “bearable arms that are typically used for law enforcement purposes” and therefore protected under the Second Amendment.
The baton was addressed in a 2014 Connecticut Supreme Court ruling that found that a complete ban on batons was unconstitutional.
“This is not just like a shot in the dark,” Beck said about the latest lawsuit. “There have been other cases that have built up to this challenge.”
The state Attorney General’s Office, which is named in the lawsuit, did not return a request for comment Friday.
If the state’s baton ban is ultimately overturned, possession may still be subject to some kind of limits.
In District of Columbia v. Heller — the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2007 landmark ruling that upheld an individual’s right to bear arms — the justices also retained the government’s ability to regulate weapons in certain circumstances, including limiting weapons in sensitive public spaces.

The Legality of Martial Arts Weapons In Canada
The Legality of Martial Arts Weapons In Canada
Iaido Journal Jan 2004
by Q. D. Agnew
Martial arts practitioners, particularly those in the weapons
arts, often have concerns about the legality of their weapons. Questions
arise about whether or not it is legal to carry a sword, use nunchaka,
take the bus with a sai in your gym bag and similar matters. The
purpose of this article is to give some guidance on these questions for
practitioners in Canada. In reading this article, please remember:
(a) the answers to these questions are often
situation-specific. This article will give you some general information;
you may still encounter a situation where the answer will be different;
(b) the laws discussed here are specific to Canada.
If you are outside of Canada, the laws which govern you will be different;
(c) having the law on your side will not necessarily keep
you from being stopped by the police, or possibly even charged with an
offence. Even if you are in the right as far as the law is concerned,
you do not want to be arrested, charged and have to go through a trial
to prove that you are innocent. The likelihood of being charged is
greater if you are uncooperative with the police. By and large, they
are simply trying to do their job of protecting the public. If you
are carrying a sword, for example, it is part of their job to determine
whether or not you are a danger to the public, so you may well be stopped;
(d) this article does not deal with firearms, compressed-air
weapons and certain other weapons which are not traditional martial-arts
weapons. These have additional provisions specifically applicable
The legality of martial arts weapons in Canada is determined
by the Criminal Code and the regulations made under it. This federal
legislation is applicable across Canada, and can be found at http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/C-46/
The Criminal Code has a number of provisions which bear on martial
arts weapons. The most specific are the regulations which prohibit
certain weapons. Under section 91(3), possession of a prohibited
weapon is a criminal offence. Prohibited weapons are defined in s.
84(1) and its regulations. The following martial arts weapons are
(a) a knife with a retractable or folding blade which, by design
or through wear, will open by centrifugal force or gravity, or by a spring
or similar device. This has been interpreted by the courts to include
a butterfly knife;
(b) nunchaku or similar objects made up of hard, non-flexible sticks
linked by a flexible length of chain. This includes objects where
the sticks are replaced by, for example, pipes or other rigid pieces, and
where the chain is replaced by rope, wire or other flexible material;
(c) shuriken or similar objects which are made of a hard, non-flexible
material in an essentially two-dimensional regular geometric form with
one or more sharp edges;
(d) manrikigusari or kusari or similar objects which are made up of
geometrically-shaped hard weights or hand grips linked by rope, chain,
wire or other flexible material;
(e) a push dagger, namely a knife where the blade is perpendicular
to the handle;
(f) any item under 30 cm which looks like another object but which
conceals a blade;
(g) spiked wristbands;
(i) manually-triggered telescoping spring-loaded steel whips;
(j) morning stars or similar items consisting of a ball of metal or
similar heavy material studded with spikes and connected to a handle by
a length of rope, chain, wire or other flexible material;
(k) brass knuckles or similar items.
In addition to these specific items, there are also sections of the
Code which deal with weapons generally. What is a weapon, however,
can depend on circumstances. Normally a chair or a beer bottle would
not be considered to be a weapon; however, both can be used as a weapon,
and if a person does so they can be charged with using a weapon.
In s. 2 of the Code, a weapon is defined as meaning not only an item
designed to cause death or injury, but also anything which a person actually
uses or intends to use to cause death or injury. It also includes
any item which is designed, used or intended for use to threaten or intimidate.
Thus the beer bottle is not a weapon until a person decides to use it to
threaten, to intimidate, or to hurt someone.
However, that is only the definition of what constitutes a weapon.
Simply possessing a weapon is not a criminal offence by itself (aside from
firearms, prohibited weapons and certain other weapons). We must
therefore look at specific sections of the Code which create the actual
The first section is s. 88, which makes it a crime to possess
a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace or for the purpose
of committing a separate crime. The second part, having a weapon
in order to commit a separate crime, is relatively simple: if you
carry a knife or club in order to rob the local convenience store, that
is a crime even if you do not make it as far as the store. It is
more difficult to determine when a weapon is being carried or possessed
for a purpose dangerous to the public peace. By and large, a weapon
carried solely for the purpose of self-defence, for instance, is not being
carried for a purpose dangerous to the public peace. Even this is
subject to restrictions, however: the weapon must be appropriate
to repel the type of attack reasonably expected, and the wielder must be
competent to handle it and use it responsibly. Thus, for example,
carrying a sword around against the possibility of being attacked by ninjas
on the streets of downtown Toronto at noon would likely not qualify.
For the purposes of martial arts weapons specifically, a martial
arts practitioner carrying his or her weapon to or from practice would
presumably not, simply by that fact, be carrying it for a purpose dangerous
to the public peace.
The next section which defines a weapons offence is s. 89, creating
the crime of carrying a weapon to a public meeting. No intention
to use the weapon is required for this to be a crime. For our martial-arts
practitioner in the previous paragraph, carrying a weapon to or from practice,
if they attend a public meeting on the way this section creates at least
the possibility that the practitioner is, by doing so, committing a crime.
One of the most troubling sections is s. 90, dealing with concealed
weapons. It is a crime to carry a concealed weapon. What, exactly,
constitutes concealment is not at all clear. There is some suggestion
that, in order for there to be a crime, the accused must have taken active
steps to conceal the weapon so that it would not be noticed by other persons.
The courts have decided in the past with respect to a similarly-worded
section that the offence requires that the weapon be concealed for an unlawful
purpose in order for it to be a crime; that is, in addition to the weapon
being concealed, the court has to be satisfied that the person carrying
it intended to do something illegal with it. Carrying a sai in your
backpack on the way to practice, therefore, would likely not be an offence
under this section. However, unlike with s. 88 the wording of s.
90 does not include this exception; it has simply been read in by the courts
in the past. This interpretation could therefore change in the future.
These are the major weapons offences which should be of concern
to martial arts practitioners. There are also a variety of related
sections which will not apply to most practitioners, but are included here
out of interest.
Anyone who finds a prohibited weapon commits a crime if they
do not turn it over the police with reasonable despatch (s. 105(1)(b)).
Destroying it is not sufficient: s. 106 makes it a crime to destroy
such a weapon without reporting such destruction to the police with reasonable
It is a crime to import or export a prohibited weapon, under
s. 103, as well as to manufacture or traffic in them, under s. 99.
These are separate offences from mere possession of a prohibited weapon
under s. 91(3), and carry more severe penalties.
Begging, that is asking someone for money, while openly carrying
a weapon is an offence under s. 265(1)(c). Strange as it may seem,
this constitutes an assault and is punishable as such, even if there was
no threat or physical contact. Similarly, deliberately impeding another
person or accosting them while carrying a weapon is an assault, again even
without any threat or physical contact. This section suggests that
martial arts practitioners carrying weapons to or from practice should
take extra care to be considerate of others and not respond to provocation
unless it amounts to self-defence. Actions which, while rude or unpleasant,
would not be a crime if done unarmed can become a crime under this section
if one is carrying a weapon openly.
One would hope that most martial arts practitioners would be
acting courteously in any event. However, the iaido practitioner
on their way home from practice who finds themselves short of bus fare
had best not start asking strangers for money with sword in hand, or even
For this section, assault by impeding, accosting or begging
while openly carrying a weapon, it is not a defence to show that your weapon
was only an imitation, not a real weapon. The section specifically
states that the offence is committed when the impeding, accosting or begging
is done while openly carrying a weapon or an imitation thereof.
It should be unnecessary to say, but if the martial arts practitioner
should go beyond carrying the weapon and actually attack someone while
carrying it, they are committing a crime. This assumes, again, that
self-defence is not an issue. Furthermore, by doing so they are committing
a more serious crime, namely assault with a weapon (s. 267), whether or
not they actually use the weapon in committing the assault. In other
words, if our iaidoka attacks someone with his or her fists while carrying
a iaito, merely the fact of carrying the iaito elevates the crime from
simple assault to assault with a weapon. Assault with a weapon is
a much more serious crime, and is punished accordingly.
Finally, if a person assaults someone and wounds them, or maims
or disfigures them, or endangers their life, again assuming we are not
talking about self-defence, they are guilty of aggravated assault, which
is an even more serious crime. This section is particularly significant
to practitioners of weapons arts, as it would seem unlikely that a skilled
practitioner could assault someone with a weapon they have trained with
and not wound them or worse. Again, one would hope that our fellow
martial arts practitioners would not be doing such things in any event.
Please note as well that it is also a crime to attempt to commit
these offences, even if one is unsuccessful. Should our iaidoka attempt
to assault and wound someone but miss, they are still guilty of attempted
aggravated assault. Attempted offences are also crimes, under s.
463 of the Code.
In the unfortunate event that the iaidoka succeeds in causing
the death of their victim, we are into the realm of murder and its subcategories,
and beyond the scope of this article. Suffice it to say that our
iaidoka is in a great deal of trouble.
It should be emphasized that none of these offences apply to,
for example, mistakes made while practising. Kendoka, for instance,
often end practice with a number of bruises from where their partner has
attacked and missed the target, striking instead some unprotected part
of the body. This is not an assault. For it to be a crime,
the attacker would at the very least have to have intended to strike the
victim on the unprotected area, rather than simply missing. Furthermore,
when any of us step out to practice, we are assumed to have accepted a
certain level of risk or even injury. This point is discussed in
greater detail below.
A separate question which occasionally arises has to do with
practice or arranged fights between practitioners. These range from
ordinary practices or tournaments such as many arts have, to television
events which bill themselves as no holds barred martial arts matches,
As noted above, when we practice a martial art, we are accepting
that there is a certain risk of injury, for which we cannot legally complain.
To use the previous example, a kendo practitioner who receives bruises
is simply a normal kendoka. Similarly, someone who plays hockey accepts
that they may be body-checked, and may suffer the normal results of body
checks. There are two primary limitations on this, however.
The first is that we are taken to have consented to only the
normal level of risk of the sport or art. What is normal depends
on the art, but is in most cases going to be pretty obvious. If a
particular exercise or demonstration is non-contact and one partner deliberately
strikes the other, for example, any resulting injury is not part of the
normal risk associated with that activity and there could accordingly be
criminal charges laid. Please note again that we are not talking
about honest mistakes, and we are not talking about trivial contact between,
for example, two young practitioners fooling around.
The second limitation is that, under Canadian law, you are not
legally capable of consenting to serious bodily harm or death. Even
no holds barred contests in Canada do not tend to feature broken bones,
gouged eyes or dead bodies, for exactly this reason. It is not clear
exactly where the line is drawn; a consensual fist-fight involving bruises
or blackened eyes is almost certainly legal; one in which someone is deliberately
maimed for life is almost certainly not.
This answers the question of duels in any event, but there is
also a separate criminal offence (s. 71) of even trying to get someone
to fight a duel. For that matter, the same section makes it a crime
to accept a challenge to fight a duel.
As can be seen, most of the rules for martial arts practitioners
dealing with weapons are simply common sense. Most martial arts weapons
are perfectly legal in Canada, provided that they are used for their intended
purpose. Practitioners carrying such weapons to or from practice
should make an extra effort to be courteous to others, and should understand
if they receive extra attention from passing police officers. Should
you wish to study an art which includes use of a prohibited weapon, it
is likely that all you can do is use a legal substitute: foam rubber
nunchaku may not be the real thing, but they will likely not get you arrested,
either. If you insist on using the real thing, then the answer has
to be the same as if you want to own a machine gun: you need to move
to a country where it is legal, because it is not legal in Canada.

5 forgotten police weapons | PoliceOne.com
By Andre Wong, Police1 Contributor
Before guns, TASER weapons and pepper spray became standard issue to law enforcement personnel, police officers relied more heavily on close-combat weapons and tactics to subdue suspects.
The use of batons and other similar weapons is in steep decline across the board, but some officers argue they still have a place in law enforcement, especially with the right training.
With that in mind, here are five old-school police weapons we don’t see around much anymore.
1. Leather slapper, sap, blackjack
The sap, slapper, or blackjack is a heavy leather pouch, eight to twelve inches long, filled with lead and sometimes a flexible steel rod. Unlike a baton, a sap’s size and shape allowed it to be concealed inside an officer’s pocket.
Saps may not look as intimidating as a gun or a baton, but thinking they’re not dangerous would be a mistake. A sap is dense enough to break bones when the user has room to swing, and the leather edge is rough enough to cause a dull, ripping laceration to the face when used as a jabbing instrument. Slappers would be ideal for use in ultra-tight quarters like a fight on the ground against a large suspect.
Slappers are a bit of a rarity these days, forbidden from carry or use by many jurisdictions across the country. Even so, some uniforms still come with a sap pocket.
2. Rapid Rotation Baton
Straight batons are more intuitive to use, but side-handle batons like the PR-24 and tonfa can give the well-trained officer several defensive options that make use of the weapon’s side handle. When the long side of the baton is braced against an officer’s wrist, it may be used to shield them against incoming strikes.
Released in the mid-1990s, the Rapid Rotation Baton is a version of the side-handle baton that adds a spinning factor into the mix. It seems like it could be useful in the right hands, but would also require a lot of training to use to the fullest.
3. Orcutt Police Nunchaku
The Orcutt Police Nunchaku (OPN) is the most popular kind of police nunchaku, and has found some use in some jurisdictions in Northern California and Colorado.
This set of nunchucks is not used exactly how you’d think. Though the OPN can be used as a striking weapon, it really shines as a grappling implement on the wrists and ankles for pain compliance.
They turned out to be quite effective in this regard, but improper use has been associated with serious injuries like wrist and limb breaks. These were phased out of use in the LAPD after 30 individuals filed medical complaints against the city following an anti-abortion protest in 1991.
4. The Iron Claw
The patent for the Argus “Iron Claw” was filed in 1935. (Photo: U.S. Patent Office)
The Argus Iron Claw was a forceful come-along tool that gave the officer a large degree of control over the wrist of a suspect. If the suspect did not comply or was combative, breaking a wrist was a simple matter of applying leverage.
Though the first “mechanical nippers” surfaced in the late 1800s, American Police Equipment notes that versions of this device were used at least through the 1950’s.
5. Multi-tool clubs
Since early law enforcement professionals relied on their batons so often, there was actually a quite popular movement to outfit police batons with implements like whistles, torches/flashlights, and tear gas. At least four models were built with weapon-retention devices that would deploy “sharp spikes or blades” in case a suspect tried to grab an officer’s baton. The text of American Police Equipment even mentions two early 20th century patents for batons with guns built into the frame.
All of these implements seem like decent ideas on paper, but unfortunately, additional modifications added to the baton made it a poorer striking weapon that would sometimes break under stress.

90,000 Which Weapon Is Better, A Nunchaku Or A Baseball Bat? What for?
I see quite a few answers that completely reject nunchaku. I find this strange. Each weapon has its own uses and has evolved in some context. If the nunchaku were so much worse than a bat, no one would have spent the time and effort (both pain and destroyed furniture) learning how to use it.
Nunchaku was not created because it looks cool to swing around.It was adapted from an agricultural tool and used by poor farmers who were not allowed to carry weapons. They are civilian, hidden weapons, self-defense weapons – and they are pretty good in this niche.
Yes, of course, the bat is a much simpler and more formidable weapon. Anyone can use it, it has more reach, it gives more power. Sure. What are we going to compare next? Pole to dagger? A Glock assault rifle? Apples with oranges?
The bat has several important disadvantages:
You cannot carry it with you in everyday life.It’s almost impossible to measure your strength and control the amount of damage you deal with a bat. You can kill or maim someone very easily. Beating someone up with a baseball bat looks very, very bad from a legal point of view. The bat is simply not a self-defense weapon: it is an offensive tool used by bandits and criminals. Swing the bat and you’ll be a criminal overnight. Escalation: The more dangerous the weapon, the higher the stakes. If you attack someone with a baseball bat, it will be considered attempted murder and you will most likely face deadly force.I did know someone who beat people with a baseball bat. He was one of those bad guys in one of the bad neighborhoods. He was stabbed to death.
The only realistic scenario in which a bat can be used as a self-defense weapon is a home invasion, but for things like this, you might still want a weapon.
I have a metal nunchaku with telescopic handles. It fits comfortably in a back pocket, has a longer range than a baton, and unlike most batons, it will not become bent and unusable after a few hits.
It is almost impossible to avoid hitting this child’s knees / shins, and if you eat him, the violence will be the last in your head. You will be too busy being blinded by the debilitating pain. Do you know any silly memes about pinching your foot or stepping on a lego – which is possibly the worst pain known to mankind? Hahaha, no
Try this: Take a cylindrical solid object and lightly tap your knee, ankle, or shin. You will find that even the slightest contact causes an amazing amount of pain.Now imagine that you are amazed by this:
You will probably end up rolling on the ground and crying and I will run away. It suits me just fine.
To summarize, telescopic nunchucks are a great alternative to the baton as a non-lethal weapon for self-defense. If you are fortunate enough to live in a country where no one uses firearms, you are an ordinary person who doesn’t really get into trouble or expect trouble, and you want something that could get you out of the pickle with some random drunk or angry dude, nunchaku definitely has its uses.
I wore mine when I was in high school and was threatened by a group of bullies who were unhappy that I was alleviating their verbal diarrhea in a school forum. I had never used it, but I had a reassuring weight in my back pocket that gave me that extra peace of mind and confidence, and that is what got me out of several potentially frustrating situations.
I think I would choose a baseball bat instead, but I think it would send the wrong kind of message.
Since most people today are peaceful civilians whose main concern is everyday comfort and safety rather than finding better ways to break someone’s bones, I would say that nunchaku is better than a bat in most cases.
Edit after a few comments from the Americans: if your country plays baseball and considers bats to be everyday objects, the situation may be different. Thanks for the comments – I admit my answer may not apply in America.However, in most parts of the world, people don’t play baseball, and you have quite a few raised eyebrows just for having a bat.
90,000 The most ridiculous weapon in history
… Fists, sticks, stones, stone axes: the arms race began at the dawn of our existence. And it was far from always successful – the designers, in pursuit of the ideal weapon, created “Frankensteins” completely unadapted to combat operations.
Several examples of such weapons, each of which is perfectly suited for the epithet “idiotic”.
Year of creation: 1990
Length: up to 65 cm
Weight: up to 0.7 kg
Where it is used: police
Telescopic baton may seem to someone quite a convenient weapon. It is compact and, judging by the assurance of the designers, is ideal for self-defense. In many countries, such a baton is prohibited for civilians – and, of course, there is a reason. However, in reality, the telescope is not so convenient at all.Already the second or third application reveals problems with the sliding system: at the most inopportune moment, you may well be left with a useless stub in your hands.
Year of creation: 1780
Length: about 90 cm
Weight: 0.9 kg
Where used: recruits of the Napoleonic army
Napoleon Bonaparte’s army was truly enormous. At some point, the new recruits simply stopped having enough equipment.It was decided to equip the new fighters, who did not have cold weapons, with specially designed short sabers: they were produced using a simplified technology – for speed, and made shorter than the usual blades of that time – to save resources. The soldiers did not like the briquettes so much that many threw them away at their first halt. An uncomfortable grip, a short blade and a guard that does not protect the wrist at all – well, where does that fit.
Fintlock’s sword pistol
Year of creation: 1800
Length: about 1 m
Weight: about 1 kg
Where used: mercenaries, cuirassiers
At the beginning of the 19th century, flintlock pistols experienced a long and painful recognition process.The military people looked in the direction of the bulky and, most importantly, unusual weapons with caution: on the one hand, no one could deny the power of the firearm, on the other – these colossus often misfired, not to mention the long reloading time. Genblade was an unsuccessful attempt to combine a flintlock pistol with a stiletto. Genblade was used for some time by mercenaries-Swiss and Belgian cuirassiers, and then the clumsy pistol safely left for the dustbin of history.
Year of creation: unknown
Range of application: 5 meters
Length: 0.1 m
Weight: up to 5 grams
Who uses: ninjas and fans of Chuck Norris
A uniquely useless weapon – unless you decide to spend your whole life mastering it. Shuriken has an extremely small radius of damage and is capable of inflicting only superficial wounds. To hit the vulnerable point of a moving enemy with a throwing star is not an easy task, even for professional ninjas.
Year of creation: unknown
Length: 50-70 cm
Weight: 0.45 kg
Where used: Japanese farmers, martial arts fans.
Bruce Lee respected nunchucks, played table tennis with them and humiliated opponents in every possible way (including Chuck Norris). A great master could afford to perform with any, even the most idiotic weapon – and the nunchucks are of this type. In the hands of an untrained person, nunchucks are dangerous and unpredictable: they did not take into account inertia – they broke their skull. Or worse.

90,000 In Moscow, more than 40 hooligans with “traumatics” and nunchucks attacked the office :: Society :: RBK
In the east of Moscow, about 40 people were detained as a result of an attack on an office.As RBC was told in the press service of the capital’s headquarters of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the incident occurred the night before. Several dozen masked men armed with firearms, cold steel and other types of weapons broke into one of the commercial organizations located at 12 Kuskovskaya Street.
The law enforcement officers who arrived at the scene detained 44 people who entered the office and obstructed the work of its employees.
“Nine traumatic weapons were found and seized from the detainees, for which they had licenses, cloth masks, a gas canister, folding and kitchen knives, brass knuckles, a metal telescopic baton, nunchucks and scrap metal fittings,” the press service said.
As a result of the attack, three people sought medical attention. An investigative and operational group is working at the scene. On this fact, a case was initiated under Article 213 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (hooliganism).
