Robin Hood thieves reappear

A group of around 20 youths wearing masks and hoods yesterday stormed into a branch of the Sklavenitis supermarket chain in Kaisariani, eastern Athens, and loaded up several trolleys with food before charging past the cash registers and distributing the goods to passers-by in the street. After distributing the goods, the thieves fled. Such raids became a frequent occurence in some Athens neighborhoods last year after self-styled anarchists promoting the “free distribution of goods” claimed responsibility for the first raid of its kind in May 2008.
Armed raid
A young man wearing a mask and a woman wearing a motorcycle helmet held up a convenience store in the central town of Volos early yesterday, threatening the 23-year-old store owner at gunpoint to hand over his takings. The pair fled with the 300 euros they were given without causing any injuries.
