A young man is wanted by police following a complaint by a foreign national who says he was injured after trying to jump into the suspect’s car to tell him to stop harassing his daughter.

According to police, an arrest warrant is pending for a 28-year-old local male in Polis Chrysochous, in connection with multiple offences under investigation including public harassment, reckless behavior, reckless and dangerous driving, and aggravated assault.

Local media said a young female was approached on a local street by a vehicle driven by the suspect on Tuesday afternoon.

Additional reports said the suspect was alleged to have made a proposition to the girl, whose age was not made known to the media, while she turned him down and called her father for help.

The 49-year-old dad, described as a tourist, reportedly tried to talk to the suspect through either an open door or window but the driver sped off, dragging the father along his route to a distance of some 700 meters.

Police did not disclose further details but confirmed they were investigating an alleged incident in Polis Chrysochous, following a complaint filed by the foreign national.

Police said a warrant has been issued for the suspect’s arrest, with local media also reporting that the driver initially had been taken to a local station for a deposition as a person of interest right after the incident but left before concluding the procedure.
