Arrests follow Instagram video showing violent beating

Police arrested the man after finding evidence in his house

An Instagram video showing five people beating up a young man has led police to arrest three people while they are still looking for the other two.

The 19-second video showing at least five people beating up an unknown person was uploaded on August 29, resulting in the incident being brought to the attention of police.

Investigations concluded that the incident took place on Grigoris Afxentiou street in Ayia Napa on August 27.

It involved five men, a 28-year-old from Romania, a 25-year-old Nicosian, two 47-year-old men, one from Larnaca and one from Ayia Napa, and a 27-year-old resident of Liopetri.

Two of them, the Liopetri and Ayia Napa residents, were arrested on Wednesday afternoon while the Romanian was arrested on Thursday morning.

The arrested men were remanded for two days in court later on.
