A Turkish man appeared in Larnaca court Wednesday after being arrested for illegal entry into an abandoned house.
Police said they received information on Tuesday from the owner of the uninhabited property in Larnaca that there was a stranger on his premises.
Rapid reaction police, who attended to the incident, arrived at the scene where they spotted a 23-year-old Turkish national who resides on the island legally.
When police informed the young man that he was illegally on the premises, he refused to leave claiming he believed the building to have been abandoned.
He was arrested for illegal entry into the house. The court on Wednesday ordered a psychological examination on the man and report back on Thursday.
