Three young men, who assaulted Ayia Napa officers in the early morning hours on Saturday, have been arrested.

Police spotted the three, two 23-year-olds and a 19-year-old, at a specific street in the Famagusta town following a tip-off about a fight around 1am.

They were holding empty glass bottles and were walking towards a nightclub, police said.

When officers approached them to ask for their personal information, they attempted to flee on foot.

But officers followed them and caught up with them at a close distance. Then, the young men attacked the members of the police, resulting in their arrest.
