Four gunmen set up an ambush on Monday on a money delivery van in the premises of Athens University campus in Zografou. The money was destined to supply a bank ATM.
When the security employees of a private security company got out of the van, four unidentified individuals threatened them with guns and injured one of the employees on the head with a gun grip, grabbed the cash and fled.
According to early information the robbers took 100,000 euros.
Another incident occurred early Monday at a butcher's shop in the Rendis meat market district of Piraeus. Four unidentified individuals with machine guns broke into the shop and took approximately 100,000 euros cash and escaped in a waiting without license plates that was driven by an accomplice.
Police have launched a manhunt in both instances.
