You f**k with the bull, you get the horns, in this instance, a ball bat

 

An acclaimed investigative journalist has been hospitalized in his native Saratov after being assaulted by baseball bat- and stiletto-wielding thugs, apparently acting with the intent to kill.

Alexander Krutov sustained a concussion, numerous bruises and a stab wound to the leg after he was attacked on Tuesday, his publication Obshchestvennoye Mnenie, or Public Opinion, said Wednesday.

The targeted assault was likely an attempted murder, foiled only by passers-by witnessing the incident, Kommersant newspaper said Wednesday.

Police have opened a case on battery charges and said they are considering the possibility the assault may be related to Krutov’s activities as an investigative journalist.

Krutov’s editor-in-chief said he had been investigating an attempted hit on a Saratov city lawmaker accused of ties to the mafia at the time of the beating, Saratovnews.ru reported.
