He said two attackers have already been detained and identified by the Chinese student and a witness.

Russia has experienced a wave of attacks on non-white foreigners this year, mainly in its second-largest city, St. Petersburg, where an Indian student was stabbed to death and a Sudanese national attacked Sunday.
