Woman Strangled in Deadly Athens Home Invasion by Burglars

ATHENS – Greek police are investigating a home invasion in which a young woman was reported strangled to death by burglars after her husband was tied up and the family dog killed, a 1-year-old child left unharmed.

No names were given but the state-run Athens-Macedonia News Agency (ANA-MPA) said the incident occurred early in the morning of May 11 in the northeast Athens neighborhood of Glyka Nera by a gang of robbers, thought to be at least three.

Preliminary reports, including from the state-run Athens-Macedonia News Agency (ANA-MPA) indicated the killers came in through the back window of a two-story house and found the woman hiding in an attic.

Reported to be in her early 20s, she was also beaten before the gang made off with 15,000 euros in cash and valuables from the heist.

The discovery was reportedly made by officers responding to a call of an incident at the address, though it was not clear where that call came from. Police were unable to question the husband as he was in a state of shock, said ANA-MPA.
