A 54-year-old man who managed to snatch €200 from a teacher’s purse at a Paphos school, evading security staff and school personnel who chased after him, is wanted for theft, police said on Thursday.

According to a police report filed by the teacher at the Makarios lyceum in Paphos, the man barged into her office at around 12.40pm.

He appeared to be frantically looking for the teacher’s purse and when she asked him what he was doing, the perp simply said “I’m not doing anything.”

He snatched €200 from her purse and though the teacher managed to cut him off, the man fled her office. The teacher shouted out to her colleagues and the private security guard to help but he managed to get out of the building and drive off with his car.

Based on his number plates, police managed to track him down as a 54-year-old man from Larnaca who fits the description provided by the teacher. An arrest warrant has been issued for him.
