Armed Robbery in Athens Leaves Two Businessmen Injured

15s5aut-thumb-largeFour men armed with assault rifles invaded an Athens cold cuts factory on Wednesday and ran away with 50,000 euros leaving two businessmen injured.
The incident took place at the Yfantis factory in Kifisia, a northern suburb of Athens, at 2:50 pm. Four men with their faces covered, carrying Kalashnikov rifles and pistols, entered the company’s accounting office, held the employees at gun point and demanded all the cash.
The company’s vice president Charalambos Yfantis (59) and CEO Constantinos Yfantis (41) stepped forward and told the men to take anything they want without hurting the employees. Presumably, the robbers mistook the two men’s reaction as an intention to resist and shot both of them in the legs.
The two executives were taken to the hospital. Police gathered several empty shells from Kalashnikov rifles and 9mm pistols in the accounting office.
According to employee statements, the men fled in a BMW car, taking with them about 50,000 euros. The witnesses said that the assailants spoke Greek, but with thick foreign accents.
The BMW was found burnt a few kilometers from the factory. Eyewitnesses told police that four men got in an Audi A4 car. A little later, motorcycle policemen located the car and followed it. The four robbers stopped the car and opened fire at the policemen, managing to escape. Their car was also found burnt in Aspropyrgos hours later.
