Foiled robbers flee with sandwiches

TWO WOULD-BE robbers were forced to settle for five sandwiches in lieu of cash on Monday morning, after they failed to get access to the till of a Limassol bakery, a police report said.

At around 2 am on Monday, two individuals wearing balaclavas entered a bakery in Limassol and, brandishing a knife, asked the 46-year-old cashier to open the till.

The 46-year-old woman fled through the fire exit and sought the help of a customer in a nearby kiosk.

At the bakery, one of the perpetrators attempted to open the till, to no avail.

Left with no options, the robbers grabbed five sandwiches which were on display – worth all of €15 – and fled the scene.

Limassol CID continues to investigate the case, the police report added.
