Police are investigating a complaint of threats received by a 27-year-old café owner in Paphos.
According to police , the complainant alleged she was threatened by a 40-year-old man who is now being investigated by Paphos CID, along with a second person, whose details are currently unknown. Both are wanted for conspiracy to commit a felony and extortion with threat of theft.
According to police spokesman Michalis Nicolaou, last Friday, the 27-year-old reported receiving threats which appear to have been made after the 40-year-old, who had given money to the complainant to become a partner in her café, changed his mind and asked for his money back.
The café owner returned a portion of the money, however he demanded an additional €4,000 and in order to secure it, a second person allegedly met the complainant and threatened her should she not comply.
Investigations are underway to establish the identity of the second person while the 40-year-old is wanted, police said.
