Police said Tuesday they arrested two more suspects in the beating of a professional basketball player outside a Nicosia club early on Sunday that left him in critical condition.

The two men, 19 and 38, were detained on Tuesday afternoon.

A 46-year-old man was already in custody in connection with the case.

The three are suspected to beating AEL basketballer Corey Manigault, 23, who is currently intubated in critical condition.

Two others were also injured during the incident, Brandon Averette, who also plays basketball for AEL, and Manigault’s partner.
