Man remanded after Ael clubhouse attacked (updated)


Limassol district court on Monday issued an eight-day detention order against a 20-year-old man arrested following an attack by 20 hooded men against an Ael clubhouse on Sunday night in Limassol.

Two were injured, one of them seriously, during the attack.

The incident took place at 11.20pm when the group of hooded men holding bats entered the clubhouse and attacked fans wearing Ael jerseys.

Police rushed to the area, but the attackers fled in various directions once they arrived. After a pursuit police managed to stop and arrest a 20-year-old.

The man, a resident of Limassol district, had in his possession a hood and a torn jersey.

He himself was injured in the face and was taken to Limassol general hospital. He had a bruise on his forehead and after receiving first aid was discharged.

Two injured people, aged 24 and 30, were found inside the club. According to their report to the police, while they were in the clubhouse, they were attacked by a group of 20 men, who beat them and stole the 24-year-old’s jersey.

They were both taken to Limassol General Hospital.

The 24-year-old was found to have intracranial bleeding and multiple fractures of the frontal bone and due to the severity of his condition, he was kept in.

The 30-year-old was found to have bruises, abrasions, and scrapes and was also held for treatment.

The attack caused extensive damages to the clubhouse.

Earlier in the evening Apollon beat Ael in a championship clash.

Limassol CID is investigating the case.
