The investigations of the Police for the case of attempted murder continue, after the injury of a 39-year-old applicant for political asylum, in the parking lot of an apartment building where he lives, in Paphos. The detainee, however, denies to the Police that he intended to kill the 39-year-old after a confrontation that took place over a parking lot.
According to the Spokesperson of the Paphos Police Department and head of the Paphos Police Department, Michalis Ioannou, last night, information was received by the Police that a 39-year-old man was taken to the Paphos General Hospital, with a serious leg fracture.
From the examinations of the Police, information was secured that around 9.10 p.m. Yesterday, while the 39-year-old was on foot in the parking lot of the apartment building where he lives, a male driver allegedly deliberately drove his car against him and beat him. The driver of the vehicle then left the scene, in an unknown direction.
Police examinations revealed that the driver of the vehicle was a 43-year-old resident of Paphos, who allegedly had some differences with the 39-year-old for parking.
An arrest warrant was issued against the 43-year-old, under which he was arrested shortly after midnight and placed in custody, to facilitate investigations.
During the interrogation, the 43-year-old admitted that he was the driver of the vehicle but does not admit that he wanted to kill the 39-year-old, but, as he stated, he got into his vehicle to leave the scene and not to continue the confrontation.
However, the allegations of the 43-year-old are being investigated by the TAE Paphos.
The vehicle driven by the 43-year-old was also located, in which the appropriate scientific examinations will be performed.
TAE Paphos is investigating the case.
