A 26-year-old was arrested by police, under suspicion of vandalising the Aek Larnaca fan club, authorities said on Wednesday.

According to police, at 7.20pm on Monday, around 30 people wearing face coverings and helmets approached the building from the back side, where using clubs and rocks they broke six windows and doors.

The individuals then threw a firecracker into the building and fled.

Police at the scene collected evidence, and after receiving an anonymous tip came to find the 26-year-old.

The suspect is expected to appear in court later to be remanded into custody.
