Police are searching for a man who killed a 42-year-old Sri Lankan in Limassol in the early hours of Monday morning.

According to CID officer Ioannis Soteriades the victim was found in the flat of a relative on the sixth floor of an apartment building on Michal Michaelides Street, off Makarios Avenue.

According to police, when the bell rang, the victim answered the door and was stabbed with a knife. He died from the wounds while the attacker immediately fled the scene.

Police sealed off the area and started investigations with the aim of tracking down the man who escaped, who according to witnesses is also Asian and lives in a nearby building.

“The suspect seems to also be Asian and we know only his first name. Efforts are underway to find out his full details so we can find and arrest him,” Soteriades said.

He said the victim and the suspect seem to have known each other but the motives behind the murder have not get been worked out.(Cyprus Mail)

    The names sound so familiar. We used to have Marthelis, Ranoris, Arnolis, Sarneris, etc. Looks like we had some sort of a pre-historical connection with Cyprus.
