Remand for suspected bakery armed robber in Limassol

Limassol court

Limassol court Thursday remanded a 29-year-old man for eight days in connection with the armed robbery of a bakery in Ypsonas committed earlier in the day.

The man, who has occupied the police in the past, denies any involvement, but investigators say they have testimony in their possession from a witness which implicates him.

The robbery took place at around 2.45am when a person armed with a kitchen knife threatened the employee of the bakery, grabbing money from the cash register and escaping in a car.

The 29-year-old was arrested when a patrol car stopped the vehicle he was driving as it matched a description of the one used in the robbery. Reports say the man, was only recently released from prison after serving several years for similar crimes, was identified by his tattoos and the fact that the clothes worn by the perpetrator appear similar to those found in his vehicle
