Police are looking into a complaint made by a teacher that for as yet unknown reasons he was attacked by a 15-year-old boy at a Larnaca school, police said Thursday.
According to police, students present during the incident are expected to be called upon to give statements as well as those to be taken from the teacher and pupil involved.
According to police, the 38-year-old educator reported that around 10am on Wednesday, as he taught in the gymnasium, a student from another department assaulted him, punching him on his forehead.
Before making his complaint, the teacher went to A&E where he was examined by doctors who stitched up the wound.
At around 1.30pm police made their way to the gymnasium where they encountered the father of the boy allegedly involved in the attack, who was there to take his son to hospital for an examination as the boy maintained he had been attacked by the teacher.
Reports say the boy did not appear to have any signs of having been attacked.
Larnaca police are continuing investigations.
