Police searching for man who held up Paphos clinic

Police are still searching for a man who entered a private hospital in Paphos on Sunday and pointed a gun at the staff, threatening them and demanding they give him some OxyContin.

After the incident, Paphos police immediately mobilised and following the issuing of a search warrant went to the home of the young man, who had been recognised, where, in the presence of his mother, they identified two fake pistols.

Police took the pistols for further examination. In the meantime, an arrest warrant has been issued against the suspect.

OxyContin (oxycodone) is a moderately potent opioid analgesic, generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain.

However, the risk of experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms is high if a patient has become dependent and discontinues oxycodone abruptly.
