  • [01] Gunmen strip police officers of weaponry

    Two gunmen took the service revolvers and bullet-proof vests of two police officers who went for a routine check outside the Tax Bureau office in Athens' northern suburb of Maroussi shortly before midnight Monday.

    According to initial reports by the police, the two officers from the Maroussi police station sent to the Tax Bureau office to investigate two suspects. The suspects took them by surprise however, immobilised them and grabbed their weaponry and bullet-proof vests, and fled the scene.

    The circumstances of the incident are being investigated by police, while a manhunt has been launched to locate and arrest the perpetrators.
