A 19-year-old man and three 15-yer-old friends of him kidnapped a 13-year-old teen in Kherson, Ukraine. The parents of the boy discovered a note, demanding $ 5,000, in 24 hours after their son had disappeared. The family did not have such sum of money and therefore the parents called the police. The police found the kidnapped boy the same day: he was kept in one of houses in 26 km of the town. When the criminals were asked why they had chosen this boy as a victim, they said: they noticed that he, as opposed to others, always shared his sandwiches with his classmates. Thus the criminals concluded that the boy was a son of rich parents.
