Pensioner tied up and robbed in Paphos

Police in Paphos are investigating the robbery of a 78-year-old apartment owner by four men who tied him up and stole €2,000 in cash, his wallet, his mobile phone, his car keys and a number of apartment keys on Monday.

The incident took place in the centre of town just off Griva Dighenis Avenue at around 6.30pm, police said.

According to reports the 78-year-old had arranged to meet two foreign men in the area to show them an apartment in one of his block of flats. Two more men allegedly appeared and tied the old man to a chair using rope and the tie he was wearing.

After cleaning him out, they fled in his car.

He managed to free himself roughly half an hour later and notified the police. The 78-year-old was taken to the emergency department of Paphos General Hospital where he received first aid and was released.
