A money exchange shop in the lower level of the Paphos Mall was robbed late on Wednesday afternoon.
Reports said that around 6.30 pm a man wearing sun glasses and a cap threatened the woman employee with a gun – or a fake gun — ordering her to sit on the ground as he took all the cash estimated at €5,000.
The employee said the man had spoken to her in English, but in a foreign accent. Closed circuit TV footage showed him leaving the mall on foot.
Police have launched a manhunt for culprit.
