Man charged after holding up clinic

A 20-year-old from Paphos was arrested on Tuesday in connection with a case of attempted robbery, illegal possession of a gun and inciting terror.

The suspect entered a private hospital in Paphos on June 17 and pointed a gun at staff, threatening them and demanding they give him some OxyContin.

While leaving the clinic, he caused damage to a vehicle owned by a pharmacist, who was also arrested in the past for a case involving the unauthorised possession and disposal of prescription drugs without the required prescription.

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

He was arrested on Tuesday at his home. After being questioned, he was charged and released.
