Robbers stole €30,000 from two women in Paphos on Monday morning after threatening them at knifepoint.

The women, 25 and 26, bookkeepers at a Kato Paphos hotel, were walking from the hotel to a bank located around 60 metres from their offices shortly after 10am to deposit the money when they were attacked by two hooded people, one of whom was armed with a knife.

The attackers, one of whom was heard speaking in Greek, grabbed the bag containing the money and fled.

Police have launched a manhunt and will look at video footage from security cameras as part of the investigations.
