The two men also allegedly threw stones on the group and their cars and allegedly drove into one of them, denting it.

In his attempt to get away, that driver collided with a parked tractor and his car overturned. He and his co-driver were taken Paphos Hospital where they were hospitalised.

The 74 year old father of the the 54 year old was also taken to hospital for precautionary reasons. He has bruises to the chest which he says he sustained after being hit by the others.
