A 30-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man were remanded for seven days on Friday in Paphos, in connection with the stabbing of two men aged 47 and 52, allegedly over financial differences.

The 52-year-old man is currently in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit at the Paphos Hospital.

Paphos police spokesman Nicos Tsappis told the Cyprus News Agency that the two suspects were facing charges for conspiracy and of attempted murder, and grievous bodily harm. The incident occurred on Thursday night on Paparigopulos Street, in the parking lot of an apartment building, police said.

“It appears that the 30-year-old woman had financial differences with the 47-year-old’s daughter and she had asked to meet with him and discuss the issue,” Tsappis said.  The woman arrived at the meeting point with the 29-year-old.

The 52-year-old went along with the 47-year-old as he was a friend of the family.

Both of the older men, the court heard, were allegedly attacked by the 29-year-old near the apartment in which the 47-year-old man lives.

The court heard that the 47-year-old and the 29-year-old got into a heated argument and the younger man attacked the older man with a knife. The 52-year-old stepped in, attempting to help but was also attacked, the court heard.

The 29-year-old then fled the scene and was arrested a few hours later.

Both of the older men were taken to the Paphos General Hospital with knife wounds to various parts of their bodies. The 52-year-old man suffered severe wounds to the abdomen and underwent surgery.  The 47-year -old was released after he had his wounds treated.

Police said the two suspects made some claims, which are being investigated.
