Five people were arrested in police raids on four homes, charged with participation in the violence, and are due to be led before a public prosecutor on Wednesday.
Three more persons were taken in for questioning, while several protestors and police were injured in the incidents.
The violence erupted when hundreds of protesting residents attacked the Mat riot police forces on Lavriou Avenue, where locals have set up a roadblock.
Riot police used teargas to disperse the protestors, while homemade petrol bombs and rocks were thrown against police and at the local police station, breaking several windows.
Police used teargas on a handful of occasions, before calm was restored about an hour after midnight.
