Police Car 08 1

Police on Saturday said they were looking for the whereabouts of a 57-year-old man in connection with money extortion.

An arrest warrant was issued for the 57-year-old, who is from Limassol, after a man, 51, from Emba reported that he gave the suspect a total of €1,200 on three occasions.

The suspect had asked for that money saying he needed it to address some urgent matters which the complainant later found was not true.

He reported the 57-year-old after disappearing without paying back the money.
