A 14-year-old boy and two 15-year-olds were arrested on Monday in connection with the assault and robbery of a food delivery man and his two friends in Limassol.

The boys are also facing charges related to conspiracy to commit a felony, carrying weapons and racism.

For the same case, police arrested two other 15-year-old boys as well as a 22-year-old man on Sunday, who has been remanded for eight days.

The attack was reported to the police by the 20-year-old delivery driver around 12.40m on Sunday.

The complainant 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 motorbike, money, and deliveries stolen, while he was working.

Then, two of his friends told him they spotted his bike in a park in the district, and they all went there to find it.

There, they were attacked by a larger group of unknown people.

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.
