POLICE are investigating a case of domestic violence after a 25-year-old Bulgarian woman in Paphos visited a medical centre on Wednesday night having suffered a facial injury.
The woman who lives with her 26-year-old husband, of the same nationality, in a village in the Paphos district visited a medical centre around at 8.30pm in Polis Chrysochous where doctors established she had suffered severe bruising to the face and reported it to police.
After being questioned, she told officers that her husband had punched her in the face the previous Sunday.

Her husband was arrested while police investigate a case of domestic violence.
