The robbery of a kiosk in Limassol was averted early on Saturday morning by the owner, according to a police report.
Police said that a 42-year-old man reported that at 4:45am Saturday a hooded man barged into the kiosk he was working in Ayia Fyla, Limassol, brandishing a 40-centimetre wooden stick and asking him for the money in the till.
According to the 42-year-old, his reaction scared the intruder, who fled the scene.
The would-be robber was described as a thin teenager aged 16 to 18, about 1.75m tall, dressed in dark clothes.
Members of Limassol CID rushed to the scene and collected evidence.
