A serious incident occurred in the area of the reservoir in Pyrgos late Tuesday evening.
According to information from the ilialive.gr website, an elderly man living in the area left the house with a carbine and, according to the testimony of local residents, pointed it at the children playing there. The guys, frightened, hurried to hide, not knowing what the intentions of the inadequate old man were, who said that he was annoyed by children’s screams and noise.
The parents called the police to the scene. DIAS Rapid Response Team officers disarmed the elderly man and cleaned up the mess. Reportedly, the aggressive city dweller has allegedly reacted in the same way in the past.
