Authorities said they were investigating a case of attempted murder while the suspect claims he had stabbed the two men in self-defence.
Police said at around 8pm on Monday, a 43-year-old resident of Paphos was rushed to Paphos general hospital with knife wounds to his side and liver.
A little later, at 8.40pm, another man, 31, was also admitted with knife wounds to his forearm.
Police officers arrested a 34-year-old man living in Paphos in connection with the stabbing.
The suspect allegedly fought with the 43-year-old about money. He said the older man attacked him and he defended himself with a knife.
A little later, he was visited by the 31-year-old man, who, according to the suspect, also assaulted him so again he had to defend himself.
The 43-year-old underwent surgery and due to the severity of his injuries he is being treated in the intensive care unit.
