Police are investigating attempted murder after a 36-year-old man from Larnaca who was staying at the Polis Chrysochous camping site in Paphos, was taken to the local hospital early Monday with a serious stab wound after a fight.

The man showed up at the Polis hospital at around 1am where he was treated for deep tissue injury to the left shoulder blade, and was admitted for observation. His condition is not considered to be critical. Police said they are investigating the circumstances of how he was injured.

According to reports, the man was stabbed in the shoulder during a brawl between his friends – all from Larnaca – and another group of men from Nicosia after tension was caused when one of the two groups blasted loud music at the campsite.

During the fracas, someone from the Nicosia group allegedly injured the 36-year-old with a knife.
