Motorist robbed on highway close to Thessaloniki


A group of people deliberately crashed their van into the car of a 69-year-old man on a highway outside Thessaloniki and robbed him, authorities said on Friday.

According to reports, three hooded suspects jumped out of the van after the crash on the Koufalia-Halkidona national highway and pulled the man, a restaurant owner, out of his car before snatching 1,300 euros.

They then drove off in the victim’s car which also contained another 2,000 euros.
