Thessaloniki university professor mugged at ATM


A university professor in Thessaloniki has reported to police that he was mugged while withdrawing money from a cash machine at the northern entrance of the AHEPA University hospital.

The 67-year-old academic at Thessaloniki’s Aristotle University said the incident occurred on Thursday in broad daylight.

He said that a man approached him and used physical force to snatch 200 euros from him before taking off.

Greek universities are facing a growing problem with lawlessness on campuses, as evidenced by a spike in attacks on students and staff.
