LIMASSOL - A 53-year-old man was Friday remanded for eight days in custody on suspicion of raping his teenage daughter.
The hearing took place behind closed doors at the Limassol District Court.
Police said the 18-year-old victim reported to the authorities on Wednesday that her father drove her to a remote area in Fassouri and sexually assaulted her.
An arrest warrant was immediately issued for the suspect who went into hiding until he was apprehended on Thursday evening.
The suspect, who has served time for attempted rape and burglary, denies sexually assaulting his daughter.
According to the police, the teenager had been living with a foster family for several years and only recently moved back in with her father.
