Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Nige­rian man who was ar­rested and re­manded in cus­tody late last month in Kypseli, cen­tral Athens, over a se­ries of vi­o­lent rob­beries of el­derly peo­ple has been linked to at least six in­ci­dents, au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the sus­pect, 32, was es­pe­cially vi­o­lent and some of his vic­tims had to be hos­pi­tal­ized. Five of the in­ci­dents oc­curred in the district of Patis­sia and an­other in Kypseli. The of­fender, po­lice said, would wait for el­derly peo­ple to with­draw money from ATMs be­fore fol­low­ing them and mug­ging them.
