AT AROUND 12.20am on Saturday, police received a report that young people who had gathered at a Nicosia high school had broken the glass door of a nearby residence.

When members of the Mobile Rapid Reaction Unit (MMAD) and Lakatamia police arrived at the scene, the youngsters dispersed immediately.

One MMAD unit patrolling the area came across a 16-year-old who was arrested.

During his arrest, the 16-year-old attacked two police members, biting one on the middle finger of his right hand.  The two constables were taken to Nicosia hospital’s emergency room where they were treated and released.

The 16-year-old was questioned in the presence of his parents, charged in writing and released.

Lakatamia police are  investigating.
