A 47-year old Limassol woman was mugged on Friday night while she was trying to get into her car, police said.
The 47-year old told police that at around 8pm, at the moment she got into her car, an unknown man opened the door on her side and tried to grab the bag that was on the passenger seat.
The woman grabbed the bag and stepped out of the car. The assailant then hit her on her hands and face in an attempt to pry the bag off of her, she said.
The mugger was then reportedly joined by a second man, who also started hitting her. The two men finally grabbed the bag off the woman and left the scene, police said.
According to the police report, the bag contained €300 in cash, credit cards and personal documents.
The woman drove herself to the Limassol General Hospital where doctors treated her for multiple bruises and lacerations on her hands and face. She was released shortly after.
Police are looking for two men.
