Three-day remand for 55-year-old woman (Updated)

A three-day remand was issued by the Paphos District Court against a 55-year-old woman in connection with a kidnapping and robbery.

On Monday evening, a woman and an unknown man entered the house of a 30-year-old woman in Paphos who was inside with her flatmate.

The man threatened and immobilised both women using a knife and after beating them on the face he asked for money, according to the victims. The two suspects stole €700 and fled the scene.

The 55-year-old woman was arrested and is in custody for further investigations, while the second offender is still being sought by police.

Investigations continue.
