Greek Professor Beaten Outside University, Says Cops Wouldn’t Come

ATHENS – As the New Democracy government plans to put unarmed security at Greek universities seeing cases of violence, a Physical Education professor was assaulted by a man he said was trying to enter the school grounds with a dog. 

The incident, said Kathimerini, happened just outside the University of Athens with the victim, Nikos Patsandaras, saying he was leaving the building where he works when he saw the man arguing with a guard.

The man wanted to walk his dog inside the school grounds during a COVID-19 lockdown that allows people to be out for exercise or to walk pets although the government wants to limit access to students and staff.

Patsandaras said he was suddenly punched in the face and knocked down and then kicked in the head and body, according to the guard who no report whether the victim was being helped. It happened in the neighborhood of Dafni, the paper said.

Patsandaras said the young man exploded in anger after the professor told him to follow the guard’s orders not to enter and the victim claimed police refused to come and told him to go to a police station to report the attack.

He said he has suffered from dizziness, nausea, headaches and instability as a result of what he reportedly said were severe head injuries and bruises on his body, the Education Ministry and school officials saying they were trying to find the attacker.
