Police arrest Paphos stabbing suspect (updated)

A 31-year-old man was remanded for eight days on Saturday in connection with a stabbing incident that took place in Paphos on Friday afternoon.

The suspect is being questioned in connection with an incident in which a 34-year-old man was seriously injured in various parts of his body by a sharp instrument.

The 34-year-old was found injured outside an apartment building in Paphos where the suspect resides.

He was rushed to hospital where he was treated for wounds to the hand, abdomen, and chest. He is said to be in serious but not life-threatening condition.

Reports said the suspect had come to Cyprus for holidays but got stuck after the airports closed because of the coronavirus.

He claimed to police that the 34-year-old had gone to his flat with two other individuals to beat him up.

The 31-year-old told police that the suspect owed him money.
