Police on Thursday evening arrested a 28-year-old man suspected of injuring three people with a knife in Limassol after getting into a fight with them because they were blocking the road during the carnival celebrations.
None of them were in serious condition.
The incident happened at 9pm on Andreas Themistocleous Street, police said. The man, in his car with his wife and three children, got stuck because there were revellers blocking the road.
He exchanged words with the partygoers and then drove his car into the crowd hitting a 23-year-old.
The suspect got out of his vehicle armed with a knife with which he injured three men, aged 23, 24, and 25.
An off-duty police officer arrived on the scene and despite being hit by the suspect’s car, he managed to arrest him.
The injured individuals were taken to hospital where they were treated for light wounds and subsequently discharged.
One of them was admitted to a private clinic where he remained for treatment.
