Police seeking Larissa bank robbers

Police in Larissa, central Greece, were seeking three suspects who allegedly stormed a Piraeus branch in Ambelonas on Thursday.

According to early reports, the unknown assailants, one of whom was armed, entered the branch and ordered the staff to hand over all available cash.

The suspects subsequently took the bank’s female manager as a hostage before fleeing with approximately 170.000 euros in cash.

The woman was later set free by her captors, not far from the bank.
