Thessaloniki police have identified a 29-year-old Albanian national as the perpetrator of a violent attack on a kiosk owner in Kopanos, Imathia, in July 2010. The attack left the 81-year-old man with serious injuries that led to his death 18 days later. According to police, the 29-year-old savagely beat the kiosk owner before grabbing some 1,000 euros in cash as well as boxes of cigarettes and cell phone cards. He then fled in a pickup driven by a 31-year-old Greek man who has confessed to his involvement, police said. The recent arrest of the 31-year-old on drugrelated charges led to an investigation that revealed his involvement in the Imathia crime.
