Police hold 3 in acid attack on Bolshoi Ballet director

MOSCOW — Police officials in Moscow on Tuesday detained a dancer at the Bolshoi Ballet in connection with an acid attack in January on the company’s artistic director Sergei Filin, a crime that gripped Moscow and threatened to haunt one of Russia’s most revered institutions.

The announcement came after a burst of progress in the investigation that began early Tuesday morning. Before dawn, police also raided the homes of two suspected accomplices, both near a complex of summer cottages outside Moscow used by Bolshoi personnel. By evening, both suspected accomplices had been detained.
