Updated: Woman tied up and robbed in Paphos home invasion

Police are looking for four men in connection with the robbery of 63 year old woman at her apartment in central Paphos on Sunday night.

Police said that three men actually carried out the robbery, but suspect a fourth was also involved.

Three men, all wearing hats and gloves entered the fourth-floor apartment, tied her up with duct tape and started looking for valuables and cash, making off with jewellery that they found in her bedroom.

The woman managed to remove the tape from her mouth and called for help. Neighbours who went to help called police. The woman was examined by a private doctor.  She had lacerations on her hands, neck and face.

Investigations show four men entering the apartment building at 7 pm on Sunday. They went to the fourth floor and three of them entered the apartment.

She told police that they had threatened her with a knife, tied her feet and hands with tape and gagged her. They then spoke to her in English, asking for her money and jewellery.  They took 2500 euro and jewellery from the bedroom.
