Three people got arrested late on Wednesday hours after a 61-year-old man was found dead outside his apartment building in the Nicosia suburb of Latsia.
Police said Dorotheos Demetriades, who was found dead at about 6:30pm, appeared to have been in a fight with a number of people. They are investigating a case of murder and manslaughter.
Under arrest are two men, aged 35 and 26, and a 31-year-old woman.
The exact cause of death is expected to be determined on Thursday by a state pathologist.
