Paphos police investigating suspected assault over parking spot

Paphos District Court

Police on Saturday were investigating after a man allegedly beat up a 63-year-old Paphos resident over a parking spot.

According to the police, they received information about an injured man on a specific street in Paphos around 11.30pm on Friday night.

Officers who arrived at the area cordoned off the scene.

The man, 63, was transferred to the accidents and emergency department of the district’s general hospital where he was diagnosed with a head injury, fractured nose, and bruises and hematoma on his left eye.

He was kept for treatment with doctors saying his condition was stable.

Evidence emerged against the 32-year-old neighbour of the older man, who was arrested.

During his statement to police, the suspect claimed that he just found the man near his house and tried to help him.

However, the injured man has identified the 32-year-old as the man who beat him up, police said.

The suspect was remanded for three days by Paphos district court.

Media reports said the reason behind the accident was a parking spot.

Last month, a 29-year-old man was shot dead in Yeri during a parking spot argument with their neighbour, 58. The 52-year-old father of the victim was seriously injured.
