Vassilios Kostetsos commented on the attack he received in Syntagma Square earlier this month through his personal Instagram account.
The fashion designer showed photos of himself on social media after the attack he received in the centre of Athens by underage pickpockets, in which he described as being "Pakistanis or Algerians".
Via his Instagram, Vasilios Kostetsos made a descriptive post about what he experienced:
"A different August passed……! In addition to warm days at the sea and snacks in beach taverns that characterise it, it also left me with another taste... unfortunately the taste of 'terror'," he wrote.
"With the happy news for our tourism... the arrival of millions of tourists in a Greece unprepared, without infrastructure to protect them in the centre of Athens.
"Next to the Greek Parliament at 21:00 at night and not in any secluded alley I was at the mercy of young pickpockets and would-be murderers.
“Shockingly sad!…. Of course, if we were tourists and this stabbing had happened, it would have taken on different dimensions.... Unfortunately for us, we are Greeks so.... take it easy... what happened now...
"When they ask me…. is everything okay? I answer, Happily We Live."
The accompanied photo with his text shows him beaten on the couch of his house and behind him is lying his friend who was with him in the face.

The fashion designer spoke to ANT1 earlier this month and described everything he experienced, declaring himself shocked.
“A bottle came over my head. I lost my balance and fell face down on the landing, before the steps. I could hear screaming, they were calling the police upstairs. And suddenly I see my friend, who is 90 kg, falling from the second step, being thrown and landing next to me,” said the fashion designer.
He also made a post through his Instagram profile. In the story uploaded from his profile, Vasilios Kostetsos wrote:
“I’m sorry for not answering the phones and messages but I’m shocked. Thank you once again to all my friends for the interest and also to all my friends from social media. Thank God I had a saint and they didn’t kill me. I repeat, not in any alley but in the most popular, historic and crowded square in Greece. I am in good health. Coming Soon. Thank you”.
