A 22-year-old man was arrested in connection to an arson attack and break-in at a chapel in Limassol which took place in July, police said on Sunday.

Officers secured a witness statement linking the suspect to the case, where the chapel next to Polemidia dam was vandalised. Plants inside the chapel were set on fire, though the flames did not spread though there was damage to the interior of the chapel’s doors and windows.

The 22-year-old was arrested on Saturday and detained for further questioning.
