Police say that burglars made off with cash and jewellery valued at around €7,500 from a house in Chloraka, in the early hours of Thursday morning.

According to police in Paphos, the robbery was reported at 4.25am by the owner of the house, a Chinese national currently living in Cyprus.

Police discovered that the robbers had gained entry into the house after breaking through the kitchen door.

In a separate incident at 3.15pm on Wednesday afternoon, police arrested a 15-year-old after he tried to break into a jewellery store display window with a knuckle duster.

Police responded to the call and found the youngster loitering around the area when they arrived at the scene but when the asked him for his identification card he pulled out a knife and – along with the knuckle duster – began threatening to attack the arresting officer.

Following a struggle, police managed to detain the youngster and soon discovered that he was a 15-year-old Limassol resident who has outstanding arrest warrants against him for charges relating to breaking-and-entering and theft.

The 15-year-old was taken to the Limassol police station where he was identified by a woman as the person who had previously attempted to snatch her purse.

The 15-year-old has reportedly admitted to the offences.
