Police issued a warrant for the arrest of Andreas Costas Demou, 53, on Wednesday morning in connection with the alleged rape of his 18-year old daughter. Police are requesting anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact their nearest police station or dial the toll-free number 1460.
The matter was reported by the daughter to a police station in Fasouri in Limassol where the pair lives during the early hours of Tuesday.
According to her statement, the 18-year-old was driven to a deserted area in Fasouri on Monday night where her 53-year-old father allegedly raped her.
She claimed that her father had told her he was going to take her to her grandmother’s house to sleep but drove her to Lady’s Mile instead where she said the assault took place.
The 18-year-old was examined by state pathologist Nicholas Charalambous and her clothes were taken as evidence to see whether tests show her father’s DNA on them, police said.
According to sources, the 53-year-old has a history of getting in trouble with police. He has served three years for attempted rape, two years for robbery, two years for holding a woman against her will and has a history of domestic violence.
Investigations are ongoing as police search for the 53-year-old.
