The manager of an apartment complex in Chlorakas was allegedly attacked by a tenant over a trivial reason, according to the police.

Police are investigating a case of grievous bodily harm and theft against the suspect tenant.

According to the police, a complaint was filed on Friday by the 23-year-old manager who said that while at the apartment complex carrying out construction work had asked a tenant to remove a boat obstructing his work.

The tenant then started shouting and when the 23-year-old attempted to distance himself, he was attacked and fell on the ground hitting his face on iron scaffolding.

According to the complaint, while on the ground, the suspect continued his assault punching the manager in the face.

At the same time, the 23-year-old manager had realised that the suspect had also taken his cell phone and would not give it back.

Following the assault, the 23-year-old was then taken by ambulance to the Paphos general hospital A&E where he received first aid for a broken nose and head injuries and was then discharged.
