Armed robbery of a Rolex store in the center of Athens

Today, December 20 at 10:55, in the heart of Athens, in the Rolex store, located at 1 Kolokotroni Street (Karitsu Square), an armed robbery took place.

Information indicates that there were at least four attackers, their faces were covered with masks, and they were holding a gun. Having beaten the guard, the bandits smashed the shop window with a hammer and took away about 20 hours. According to preliminary information, the attackers fled on two motorcycles, and the crime weapon – a hammer – was found on the spot.

Major operation in progress ΕΛΑΣ to catch robbers.

Alas, in an era of crisis and economic cataclysms, rampant crime increases. It seems that only recently, one generation ago, our grandparents remember that blessed time when “the doors were not locked.” Now, every day, the “bloody” crime – the robbery of banks, shops, citizens. In a criminal environment, respectively (how could it be otherwise?), the younger generation “flourishes” – youngsters with knives brutally crack down and rob their peers.

We have never known Greece like this before…
