YEREVAN. – French and Kazakh citizens were robbed in Armenia.
Police received a report, on July 21 at 8:35pm, informing that people were robbed at the bends near Dilijan town.
French citizen Joaquim A., 30, reported to the police officers who arrived at the scene that, on the same day at around 8pm, he and his friend—Kazakh citizen Arsenny S., 21—were standing at the intersection of Sevan Peninsula, and in order to go to Dilijan, Police told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
Sometime thereafter, a vehicle with Russian license plates, and with three persons inside, had stopped in front of them. Learning that these two foreigners wished to go to Dilijan, these persons had offered to drive them there without charge, and the foreigners accepted. So they put two of their three bags in the trunk of this vehicle and headed to Dilijan.
