Greek Jeweler Arrested for Beating Suspected Robber to Death (video)



Greek police arrested the owner of a jewelry store in central Athens and one more person on suspicion of killing a man who tried to rob the store.

The incident occurred during daylight hours on Friday on a busy street and it was captured on camera.

The shocking video shows the thief panicking when he realizes he is trapped and going on to break a street-level display window on the storefront with a fire extinguisher.

Two men are seen repeatedly kicking the man in the head and parts of his body as he laid unconscious.

According to police on Saturday, the would-be thief, who has been described only as being in 20s and a drug addict, died on the way to hospital as a result of his injuries.
