Man held up in his car in northern Athens


Three assailants robbed a company employee at gunpoint in the northern suburb of Marousi on Thursday, state-run news agency ANA-MPA reported.

Police sources cited by the news agency said the perpetrators had placed a rubbish bin in the middle of Dionysou street to force the man to stop the car he was driving.

The 45-year-old victim reportedly told officers the robbers then grabbed a bag he was carrying with a large amount of cash and fled.

Police is searching for the perpetrators.
