20-year-old arrested for robbing delivery man

The incident took place on 15 February 2021 in Nicosia and a complaint was filed on the same evening by the delivery man.

The 23-year-old delivery man had gone to a specific address in Nicosia to deliver food but while he was trying to communicate with the person who had ordered the food, two people approached him. At gun point they asked him for his money and for the key of his motorcycle.

Then the two unidentified culprits ran away toward an unknown direction.

The Nicosia CID is investigating the case.
