He was pursued by another member of the Police and was stopped in an adjacent street of Ledras Street where he was arrested for the offenses of illegal entry into the territory of the Republic of Cyprus and assaulting members of the Police.
The three members of the Police who were attacked were taken to Nicosia General Hospital where they received first aid and were discharged. One member of the Police has a broken shoulder while the other two members have bruises on various parts of their bodies.
