Suspect in Mall stabbing apprehended

A 34-year-old Palestinian man was arrested on Tuesday, in connection with the stabbing of a security guard at the Mall of Cyprus in Nicosia last week.

The security guard was stabbed three times and the assailant only stopped after the blade broke off from the handle. The security guard, a man from Bulgaria, is in stable condition.

The 34-year-old was subsequently spotted at the north. He was arrested and delivered to the Cypriot authorities through the United Nations. He is expected to appear before court on Wednesday.

Police are looking to charge the 34-year-old with attempted murder, causing grievous bodily harm and possession of drugs.

The incident took place on Thursday at around 2pm. The 34-year-old went inside the Mall and attacked the security guard with a knife. He then ran outside, got in a vehicle and fled to the north.
