A man was arrested on Tuesday morning for beating a woman and leaving her unconscious on a public road in Paralimni.
According to police, a 39-year-old Greek national was apprehended by authorities in Paralimni in connection with an assault against a 33-year-old woman from Poland, who was badly beaten and left unconscious on a local road around 2:30am.
