Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A 38-year-old man was ar­rested yes­ter­day as he was at­tempt­ing to rob a jew­elry store in Syn­tagma Square, cen­tral Athens. The sus­pect re­port­edly en­tered the store, threat­ened an em­ployee with a gun and fled with jew­elry worth 74,910 euros and an undis­closed amount of cash. He was chased by the store owner and was fi­nally nabbed by po­lice who were called to scene. Apart from a pis­tol, po­lice also con­fis­cated forged doc­u­ments and a fake hand grenade found in his pos­ses­sion. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion later linked the sus­pect with a string of armed rob­beries of banks and stores since 2015. The jew­elry and money were re­turned to the owner.
