Two cars, belonging to a father and son involved in horse racing, were torched on Friday morning in Anthoupolis.
“Two cars were destroyed in the early hours, in Nicosia, from a fire that was set maliciously,” police said. “The fire broke out around 12.40am today, the cars were parked outside a block of flats in Nicosia. Members of the fire service put out the fire which completely destroyed both vehicles.”
Police said investigations carried out had determined the fire had been set between the two vehicles, which were parked next to each other, the aim being for it to spread to both.
Reports said one of the cars belonged to a 59-year-old man, a horse trainer, while the other belonged to his 35-year-old son who also works at the racetrack.
