The duty Unit of Police Division “Tsentralny” of the Russian MIA Administration for Novokuznetsk was reported about a visitor in a store who had been staying there for a long time and was looking embarrassed and anxious. The store employees said that they had noticed a woman wandering aimlessly in the store and suggested assistance to her. It turned out that the woman did not remember where she lived. After that, the employees of the store called the police.
The policemen who arrived at the scene identified that woman and the address of her residence, after which they delivered her to her relatives. As it turned out, the 60-year old resident of Novokuznetsk had suffered a stroke some time before and that she subsequently had short lapses of memory.
The pensioner’s family thanked the policemen for responsiveness, attention and assistance. The policemen recommended the woman’s relatives to apply to the nearest police unit for her to pass a voluntary dactyloscopic registration procedure.
