Man jumps down six metres to avoid arrest


Paphos police arrested a man after he jumped from a height of six metres in an attempt to escape on Wednesday evening.

According to a police announcement, officers spotted a cyclist at around 11.20pm on Poseidon avenue.

As soon as he saw the officers, the 30-year-old man abandoned his bicycle and fled on foot.

He jumped from a height of six metres, landing in an underground parking.

Though his leg was injured by the fall he still tried to run away but was soon caught.

When he was searched police found three mobile phones, a knife as well as burglary tools.

The suspect was arrested because he did not explain how the objects came to be in his possession.

After his arrest he was taken to Paphos hospital where he was treated for a fractured heel.
