Police in Limassol arrested a 22-year-old man on Sunday, suspected to have beaten and robbed a delivery driver in the night.

According to police, around 12:40am, a 20-year-old delivery driver showed up at Limassol police station, where he told officers he had been threatened with a knife by a group of unknown individuals and had his bike, money, and deliveries stolen, while he was working.

The delivery driver then told police that two of his friends informed him they spotted the vehicle in another area of Limassol.

Police said that the driver went to the area with his two friends to take the motorbike. However, after arriving there, the three men were attacked by a group of unknown young men.

The three men attempted to flee, but were stopped by the group, who beat the three with clubs.

At some point, the 20-year-old delivery driver managed to escape the attack, took his motorbike, and went to the police station to report the crime.

Following the incident, police went to Limassol General, where they found the two friends of the 20-year-old.

The two friends, 34 and 38, were kept for treatment, as doctors said their condition was serious but stable. The 34-year-old sustained fractures to his head, and right arm, while the 38-year-old had a fracture on his knee and lacerations.

During questioning, police received testimony on a 22-year-old, who was later found and taken into custody.

Limassol police are continuing their investigation.
