Gazza hazza quiet hol

Limassol rocked by violent weekend
By Jacqueline Theodoulou

LIMASSOL LIVED up to its rough reputation over the weekend as one restaurant was blown up, two gangs clashed and a taxi driver was accused of beating a young married couple in an inexplicable bout of road rage.
The episodes began at midnight on Saturday with the clash between a 23-year-old man, his 21-year-old wife and a 46-year-old taxi driver.
As reported to the police, the couple had been driving down Amathounta Avenue when they were overtaken by a black taxi which then suddenly blocked their way, forcing them to pull over on the side of the road.
Then, according to the 23-year-old and his wife, the cabbie approached the young man and started punching him in the face while at the same time mouthing obscenities.
The reasons behind the taxi driver’s outburst are unknown, though according to the police he had made a number of claims that are currently under investigation.

While investigating the young couple’s beating by the hot headed taxi driver, Limassol CID received yet another emergency call informing them of a serious incident involving a loaded shotgun, taking place in a home in Pano Polemidia.
Specifically, three armed friends from Limassol – aged 22, 26 and 30 – barged into the house of three brothers in Polemidia, demanding explanations over the alleged illicit affair the eldest was having with the wife of one of the three invaders.
The brothers then pounced on the three interlopers and beat them until the three invaders had to be taken to Limassol General Hospital for treatment. The 26 and 30-year-olds were later discharged while the 22-year-old was kept in overnight.

Also in the early hours of Sunday morning, vandals smashed the window of a restaurant in Limassol, doused the place with flammable liquids and set it on fire.
But they were out of luck, as the flames died out a few moments later, not causing much damage to restaurant Red Ram, on October 28th Street.
Restaurant owner Fedonas Ioannou, 48, told police he had no idea who might have wanted to do this to him.
