Armed co-op robbery in Larnaca

A man wearing a ski mask and armed with what police believe was a fake pistol, robbed a Larnaca co-operative bank at lunchtime on Friday, getting away with around €20,000.

Police said the man, who wore blue shorts with white stripes on the sides and a long-sleeve black shirt, entered the Kontea co-op in Dromolaxia just as a woman was going through the door, which is controlled from inside.

He is around 1.90 metres tall, police said.

“Wielding a gun, which is apparently a replica, he asked the three tellers for the money in broken English,” Larnaca police deputy director Christakis Papademetriou said.

The man took the money and left the branch on foot.
