Police on Saturday said that a house in Moutagiaka, a village on the outskirts of Limassol, was shot at around midnight on Friday night, leading to the arrest of a 57-year-old man.

The man is suspected of having shot at the house, illegally possessing and carrying a firearm, as well as illegally possessing explosives.

Police said that they received a tip at ten minutes past midnight that someone had shot the front of a house in Moutagiaka, where a 61-year-old man and 56-year-old woman are staying.

Officers arrived at the scene where the suspect had reportedly driven by on a motorcycle, fired at the house and subsequently fled.

The house has been cordoned off to allow the police to carry out further tests.

The man was arrested at around 5am after a warrant was issued.
