Wanted man hands himself in

Ioannis Cosmas, 41, who was wanted by the police in connection with investigations into a case concerning conspiracy to commit felony, robbery and causing grievous bodily harm handed himself in to Limassol CID on Wednesday afternoon, accompanied by his lawyer.

Police connected Cosmas with the June 10 attempted robbery of a petrol station in Limassol in which a 33-year-old employee was shot and injured after he refused to hand over the money.

According to police, one of two perpetrators entered the petrol station and asked for the money while holding out a gun. He spoke in a Greek Cypriot dialect. The footage on the shop’s surveillance cameras, showed the employee pushing the would-be robber, who had put a pistol to the back of his head.

The employee, who suffered a superficial scalp wound was treated at Limassol general hospital and discharged.

Cosmas was also being sought in connection with the robbing of 50-year old Russian women in a Limassol department store car park.
