Man wanted in connection with car boot assault (PICTURE)

Police are calling on the public to help them locate a man wanted in connection with an incident that saw a man beaten up and then locked in the boot of a car last week.

CID Headquarters say 23-year-old Loukas Xenophontos is wanted for questioning for charges relating to conspiracy to commit a crime and misdemeanor, committing an abduction of an individual with intent to prevent the victim’s liberation, assault and causing actual bodily harm.

The incident occurred on September 7 and 8 when a 25-year-old man was savagely beaten up and locked in a car boot for hours. The motive is said to be financial differences.

Another man is already in custody in connection with the attack.

Police are calling on persons with knowledge as to the whereabouts of Xenophontos to contact their nearest police station or contact Nicosia CID on 22 802222. Calls can also be made to the civilian hotline on 1460.

It is not the first time that police have called on the public to help them find the suspect.

Back in December 2013, police had issued another arrest warrant for Xenophontos in connection with an arson attack on a car.

In July last year, he was wanted for questioning by police in connection with charges relating to drug trafficking and manslaughter – after another man had died from a drug overdose.
