Two arrested, more sought after brawl on Limassol seafront (updated)

Police said they have arrested two men and issued arrest warrants for four others suspected of taking part in a brawl in Limassol on Sunday, resulting in the hospitalisation of one man.

The man, 28, underwent surgery for a broken elbow. His condition is said to be serious.

Police said the fracas kicked off at around 7.30pm near the embankment between two groups. Seven people wielding clubs and pieces of metal attacked the man and also caused damage to his car.

Police spokesman Christos Andreou said they later arrested two men, 25 and 39, found in possession of offensive weapons. The pair were friends with the 28-year-old.

Andreou said both were found to be residing on the island without permits.

He added that they’ve issued four arrest warrants for individuals belonging in the other group, which had travelled from Larnaca. They were also seeking three more suspects.

Andreou said they were trying to determine the reasons behind the incident although a Limassol police spokesman said Sunday it appeared to be financial differences.
