Police looking into Limassol attempted robbery

Police are looking into an attempted robbery in Limassol after a man was attacked outside his home early Tuesday.

Police said that according to the complaint, the 41-year-old had just parked his car outside his home at 12.10am and was opening the boot of the vehicle to take his bag containing €2,000 in cash when he was attacked.

He said two unknown persons hit him on the head with a club and sprayed him with pepper spray.

The man resisted and shouted for help, which apparently scared the perpetrators who fled the scene.

The 41-year-old made his way to a private clinic where he was treated for injuries to the left side of his face, above his eyebrow, and for irritation to his eyes.

The culprits are described as around 1.70 metres tall. At the time of the attack, they were wearing dark clothing. One of them also wore a hood.

Evidence was taken from the scene for forensic testing.
