Four Swedish tourists remanded after attack

Four tourists from Sweden aged, 18, 21 and 23 were remanded for five days on Friday for allegedly attacking and causing grievous bodily harm to a compatriot of theirs, 19, in Ayia Napa on Monday.

Police are looking for the whereabouts of two 21-year-old men, also from Sweden, that are believed to be involved in the same case.

The 19-year-old that was staying in an Ayia Napa hotel, reported on Thursday that he was attacked by six compatriots early Monday, at around 2am, while he was in a night club, in Ayia Napa, with his girlfriend, also 19.

According to the report, his girlfriend had asked the six to join them in the club, to deliver her room key, which she had given them earlier in the day to keep.

When the six men arrived at the club, the report said, they attacked the alleged victim for no reason, pushed him and he fell on the floor. They then reportedly began punching him on the face and other body parts.

The 19-year-old was transferred to a private clinic in Paralimni with a jaw fracture and abrasions and bruises on the neck, head and face. He underwent surgery and remains in hospital.

Four of the suspects were arrested on Thursday night. They deny any involvement in the case. The two others are wanted by the police, while their names have been placed on the stop list.
