A few minutes later, another driver described as a 32-year-old male resident of the building, pulled up and started honking his horn at another vehicle which was parked in his designated space.

According to police, the driver of the vehicle came out and moved his vehicle, while the tenant started shouting over the incident.

Law enforcement officers were called to the scene while the two injured men were rushed to the Emergency Room at Limassol General Hospital. Doctors said the 30-year-old had fractured his arm and had a swollen hand, while the 21-year-old was hospitalized after sustaining injuries on his blade shoulder and arm.

Officers arrested the two men aged 32 and 26 on suspicion of committing offences involving bodily harm and grievous bodily harm.
