Robber grabs groceries, overlooks briefcase with cash

A robber grabbed two bags of groceries out of a woman’s hands as she exited her car outside her home in Nicosia on Friday night but he failed to notice she had a briefcase with the day’s takings in the passenger seat.

According to police reports, the woman, 52, an employee of a fruit and vegetable shop reported that around 7.40pm a man wearing a hood and black clothing grabbed the two shopping bags she was carrying and fled as she got out of her car.

The woman also had a briefcase with the day’s takings in the vehicle and was about to open the door on the passenger side to take it out when she realised someone was standing behind her.
