Further remand after man set on by five others

A 37-year-old man was remanded for five days on Saturday in connection with the attempted murder of a 48-year-old man on Tuesday night, who was attacked and knifed by five people in a Limassol taverna.

The suspect was arrested on Friday after police secured evidence that he was among the five attackers of the 48-year-old.

According to police, five people entered a taverna located on Misiaouli and Kavazoglou streets shortly after midnight and began hitting the 48-year-old with clubs and glass bottles. One of the attackers stabbed him in the chest with a pocketknife which has been seized as evidence.

The attackers left the scene in a vehicle. The injured person was taken to the Limassol general hospital.

His condition is considered serious but not life threatening. He was able to give a statement to help identify the attackers.

According to reports, the 37-year-old was allegedly seen hitting the victim during the incident with a baseball bat.

Another suspect, a 43-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the attack was remanded for eight days on Wednesday. He is the owner of the getaway car.

The 37-year-old refuses to cooperate, the court heard.

Police are searching for the whereabouts of two more suspects.
