Police on Monday arrested a 57-year-old man, in relation to a case under investigation of shots fired at two Limassol residences earlier in the year.

According to a police statement, on April 25, the owner of a Limassol house under construction found damage to two of his building’s windows which tests confirmed had been caused by bullets. Gunshot damage was also caused to the building’s pillars.

Subsequently, on June 11, shots were fired at another residence in Limassol. From the shots, three bullets hit a window and ended up inside the house, while a fourth hit the wall above the main entrance.

Police at the time proceeded to arrest a 57-year-old man, after suspicions were raised against him, for firing the shots in June. The 57-year-old was later released, while investigations continued.

Following new evidence that emerged during the ongoing investigation, an arrest warrant was again issued against the 57-year-old suspect on Monday. The man was found and taken into custody shortly after 4:30 pm.
