A large sum of money not yet disclosed by police was taken during an armed robbery targeting the Athens Bar Association on Tuesday.

The robbery was carried out by two men that had not concealed their faces in order to avoid arousing suspicion, who entered the building and went up to the second floor to the cashier, holding employees at gunpoint while they filled bags with money.

A security guard realised that something was wrong as they were leaving the building and attempted to alert the police but the two robbers beat him savagely and escaped, probably in a private car.
A search has been launched by police to locate and arrest them.
