Police on Tuesday said a 21-year-old man was arrested for setting fire to a police vehicle on Easter Saturday in Ypsonas.

The Limassol man is suspected of rioting, arson of a police vehicle and malicious damage to a police car. The suspect was taken into custody for investigations.

A police car was completely destroyed on Easter Saturday night in what Limassol police spokesman Lefteris Kyriakou called an “organised attack”.

The car had been set on fire when police responded to a call regarding youths congregating with Molotov cocktails in hand.

About 100 youths were believed to be involved in the attack.

Police investigations are still ongoing.
