Police arrest 35 year old in connection with assault

Police in Larnaca arrested a 35 year old to facilitate investigations into an assault incident that took place on Easter Monday.

According to police, the 35 year old man met with an 18 year old and a 23 year old outside a betting shop in the village of Anglisides to resolve a dispute.

While they were arguing, the suspect tried to attack the 18 year old with an adz. The 23 year old intervened and the suspect hit him on the head with the tool.

The 23 year old sustained head injuries and was transferred to Larnaca General Hospital.

Police later located the 35 year old in his home in Kofinou and arrested him. He has reportedly admitted to the assault, in a voluntary statement.

He will be led to court today.
