A 40-year-old Larnaca man was on Friday remanded in custody for six days in connection with robbing a woman, 71, inside her home.
The woman told police she was awakened by noise at around 5.20am on Thursday and she saw a man whose face was covered with a scarf.
He attacked her and threatened her with a knife. The robber took various valuables of an unknown value, €20 in cash and some food from the fridge, the woman said.
He tied the woman’s hands with masking tape before leaving the flat. The woman went to hospital where she was treated for scratches around her mouth when the robber tried to prevent her from screaming.
The suspect was arrested in the afternoon, police said. He denied any involvement.
