Deputy PM subjected to verbal assault

Deputy Prime Minister Theodoros Pangalos was the victim of a particularly vehement verbal attack on Friday, a police report said.

The incident occurred outside his office on Pireos Street, when a 24-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman riding by on a motorcycle spotted him and began to hurl abuse at him.

Pangalos?s guards alerted the police, who subsequently conducted a search and found a knife and pepper spray in their posession. It was not clear whether Pangalos would press charges.
