Police on Friday arrested a 15-year-old male in Larnaca in connection with sexual offences against a nine-year-old boy.
The arrest was made after the nine-year-old’s parents reported to police that their son had been the victim of sexual abuse for the past one or two years.
A state pathologist examined the boy and confirmed that he had been sexually abused.
Police said the 15-year-old admitted to the offence. He was arrested but was expected to be released later Friday.
The case is being investigated by the CID.
