Georgian man attempted to steal from police chief’s assistant apartment

The ‘unlucky’ burglar entered the Police Chief’s assistant’s apartment at around 01:30 last night while the owner was in bed sleeping. The victim woke up and saw the man in his living room trying to steal his TV set; the burglar attacked him but he fought back forcing him to leave the premises. He was injured in the process and was taken to Nicosia’s General Hospital. The perpetrator, a 33 year old Georgian with Greek passport, was later arrested by members of the Police’s Rapid Reaction Unit (MMAD).
