Two teenagers arrested over knife-point theft of delivery man’s motorcycle

Police on Monday arrested two teenagers in connection with a Sunday evening theft of a motorcycle at knife-point in Limassol following a report by a 28-year-old food delivery man.

Police actually found three reported stolen motorcycles while investigating this case.

The 28-year-old reportedly said he had delivered an order at an apartment in central Limassol around 7pm and upon returning to his motorcycle he was stopped by two strangers holding a knife. The two then got on the motorcycle and sped off.

Police were alerted at around 9:20pm that four or five youngsters were trying to disassemble three motorcycles at a parking lot of an apartment complex.

When police arrived at the scene, they saw a number of youngsters, including a girl, running away and after chasing them on foot they managed to arrest the girl who is only 13. She was later questioned, in the presence of her mother, and released.

Three reported stolen motorcycles were identified at the specific parking lot, including that of the delivery man. The two arrested young men are 14 and 16 years of age.
