A 16-year-old child was arrested in Larnaca on Saturday after allegedly threatening two tourists with a knife and using xenophobic language against them.

A report was filed by the tourists, who had travelled together to Cyprus, that four youths had approached them at around 3.30pm, one of whom was carrying a knife.

They said the child carrying the knife had used threatening language “in relation to their nationality”.

Following an investigation, police arrested the child shortly after 10pm.
