Greek police releases video of arrests at Athens University following assault incident

It comes a day after an assault took place at the same campus against an academic during lecture time.

The video released by Greek police captures the arrest of six persons, who according to police were attempting to bring down a wall to gain access to a space that was previously an in-campus squat.

The case concerning the assault against the academic is still under investigation with authorities on the hunt for a group of ten suspects who stormed into the class wearing masks and physically attacked the academic.

According to Greek media reports, police are investigating whether the attack is related to charges of usury the academic is reportedly facing and an investigation is said to have been launched by a prosecutor following claims of his alleged involvement in a pedophile ring.
