Man remanded for assault

A 21-year-old man suspected of stabbing and injuring another with a sharp object was remanded for eight days by the Paphos court on Monday.

Around 2.50pm on Sunday, an injured 21-year-old man was found on a road in Paphos.

He was taken to Paphos hospital where he underwent surgery for wounds to his stomach and right arm caused by a sharp object.

The injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Evidence pointed to the involvement of the 21-year-old suspect and he was arrested.

The court on Monday heard that the motive behind the attack involved personal differences. The men had argued over the fact that the victim had given the suspect his mobile phone to repair but he failed to return it.
