A 40-year-old man in Kofinou being investigated for allegedly assaulting his partners’ 15-year-old daughter, police said on Tuesday.
He had been arrested a day earlier after the girl told police the man had indecently assaulted her.
The suspect was charged in writing and freed to appear in court at a later date.
Social welfare services ordered that girl went to live with her father.
The case came to light last week when the 15-year-old’s teacher reported the case to police. She told officers the girl had confided in her.
Larnaca police are investigating.
