Larnaca police are investigating a claim of assault and battery against two men, 32 and 38, a report said on Wednesday.
According to the report, a 22-year-old man from Larnaca filed a complaint on Tuesday night that around 9.15pm he was in open space with some friends of his near the Antonis Papadopoulos football stadium, in order to discuss with another group of men certain differences between them.
Amid the discussion, the man claimed, a 32-year-old man from Tsiakkillero, Larnaca, and a 38-year-old from Larnaca, father of one in the other group, and assaulted the 22-year-old, punching him in the head.
The 32-year-old also assaulted a 19-year-old from Larnaca, hitting him and kicking him.
The 22-year-old said he was able to escape, but the two men chased him in their car, and he sought refuge in a nearby residence.
An ambulance was called to the scene and transported the 22-year-old to the Larnaca general hospital, where on-call doctors found a hematoma on his scalp, neck and chest pain, and admitted him as a precaution.
The 19-year-old did not go to the hospital for treatment, police said.
Larnaca police continues to investigate the case.
