Armed burglars target Athens suburbs

Armed burglars raided two homes in the early hours of Wednesday morning, netting valuables but causing no injuries.

In Aghios Stefanos, north of Athens, two intruders broke into a ground-floor apartment, one wielding a screwdriver and the other a knife, and threatened the residents to hand over cash, a cellphone and jewelry.

In Kifissia, north of Athens, two burglars entered a detached house and used guns to threaten the owners into handing over cash and jewelry.

The perpetrators remained at large on Wednesday.
