Second remand after abduction of Larnaca man (update)

A second person was remanded on Sunday after his arrest on Saturday night over the abduction and robbing of a 33-year-old in Larnaca.

According to the police, evidence was given against a 26-year-old who was then arrested. On Sunday he was remanded for eight days by Larnaca district court.

His arrest follows that of a 25-year-old who on Thursday was remanded for eight days.

The police are continuing to search for another 26-year-old for whom an arrest warrant has been issued.

Police investigations started on Thursday when the 33-year-old was reported missing from his home in Larnaca.

He had left his home at 2.20pm on Wednesday with two other people, aged 25 and 26.

One hour later he contacted a friend by phone and told them that the 26-year-old and another man had taken him to an unknown area, attacked him and robbed him. They had also tried to take his mobile phone.

Police examinations show that the 33-year-old’s phone was turned off shortly after he contacted his friend.
