Burglars tie up Kifissia mayor along with wife and son

Police were seeking two burglars who are said to have broken into the home of Kifissia Mayor Giorgos Thomakos in the early hours of Monday morning and tied up him and his family before stealing cash, jewelry and other valuables.

The intruders struggled with Thomakos after breaking in, according to sources, but overpowered him and tied him up before doing the same to his wife and his nine-year-old son. The boy managed to untie his binds and release his parents once the burglars had fled. There were no reports of injuries to any of the three.
