A 44-year-old man was remanded in custody for eight days on Friday on suspicion of assaulting and injuring a man with a box cutter the previous day in Nicosia.
The 49-year-old underwent surgery to the throat on Thursday and is said to be in serious but not life-threatening condition.
The incident happened at around 6pm at the offices of the company owned by a 39-year-old in Strovolos. The suspect got into a fight with him during which he injured the 39-year-old and a second individual, 49, with a box cutter.
They were rushed to hospital where the 39-year-old was treated and discharged. The 49-year-old is currently undergoing treatment in the intensive care unit.
The suspect and a fourth person who claimed he had been pushed to the ground by the 44-year-old also visited the hospital. Both were discharged after receiving first aid.
