Remand issued for rape suspect

Limassol district court on Friday remanded a 53-year-old man for eight days in connection with a case of rape, sexual abuse, incest and kidnapping.

Andreas Costas Demou was taken into custody on Thursday 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.
