Police arrest man wanted for rape

Police on Thursday apprehended a 53-year-old man wanted for rape and on the lam since Tuesday.

Andreas Costas Demou was taken into custody after police, acting on a tipoff, tracked him down in Alassa, outside Limassol, where he had been hiding.

Demou disappeared on Tuesday, when his 18-year-old daughter filed a complaint with the police. A warrant for his arrest was issued shortly after.

The girl alleges that on Monday night her father drove her to a remote area in Fasouri, Limassol, where he proceeded to rape her.

She claimed that Demou had told her he was going to drive her to her grandmother’s house to sleep but instead drove her to Lady’s Mile where the alleged assault took place.

The suspect has a prior criminal record.

Demou is set to appear before Limassol district court on Friday for his remand hearing. Sources said he is being charged with rape, sexual abuse, incest and kidnapping.
