Limassol police are looking for a masked man who grabbed money from a cash register at a bakery in Kato Polemidia early on Friday and is suspected of attempting to rob another bakery at knifepoint a little earlier.

Authorities received information that a man, wearing a face mask, attempted to rob a bakery at Nikou and Despinas Pattichi avenue at around 2.30am.

Holding a knife, he threatened the female employee, demanding that she open the cash register, but when she refused, he left on foot.

Ten minutes later, another bakery reported that a man who had picked up a bottle of water and was waiting to pay for it grabbed some money from the till and ran off.

Police suspect the two incidents involve the same culprit.

The suspect is described by eyewitnesses as thin, 1.75m tall with brown hair. He was approximately 30 to 40 years old and spoke in the Cypriot dialect. He was wearing a blue T-shirt and grey shorts.
