The three men got off the bus on Grigoriou Lambraki Street where the two young men were seen by witnesses attacking and beating the 51-year-old repeatedly. A police patrol car spotted the assault and arrested the two assailants.
The 51-year-old was rushed to the nearest hospital where he died of his injuries shortly afterward. The cause of the argument remained unclear.
