Three policemen were being treated in hospital in the Peloponnese yesterday after being involved in a collision as they attempted to stop three robbers who had earlier held up a post office at Zavgolatio in Corinthia. Authorities said that the three suspects had been planning to hold up a branch of ATE Bank but found it closed due to a strike by the bank employees’ union, OTOE. The robbers then allegedly went to the nearby post office and forced employees at gunpoint to hand over the cash. The suspects then drove off in a getaway car and allegedly rammed the police vehicle with the three officers, pushing it off the road.
