Police in Limassol on Monday arrested a 28-year-old man for money extortion through threats.
In a complaint received last Friday, the owner of a Limassol property told police that on March 14, the 28-year-old had arrived on his property, demanding monthly protection money, and claiming to be acting on behalf of a third party. The suspect allegedly made threats against the owner.
On March 16, an unknown man contacted the owner by phone asking for a meeting, without offering a reason. The second suspect is reportedly connected to the 28-year-old and implicated in the threats the latter made.
Following the complaint to Limassol CID last Friday, a judicial warrant was issued against the 28-year-old, who was arrested shortly after 10:00 pm on Monday.
