Two out of three people arrested in connection with an attempted murder in Limassol on Saturday morning were remanded in police custody for eight days on Sunday.

The third man was charged with conspiracy. Meanwhile, the victim of the attack at a construction site on the Yermasoyia beach front has been described by doctors as out of danger.

One of the three men had reportedly confessed to stabbing his 20-year-old colleague when a difference arose while they were working on the 12th floor of a building under construction. The second has admitted to being the person who caused the fight while the third said he helped the main suspect get away. The first two were remanded as suspects for an attempted murder.

According to police the incident happened at around 10am on Saturday when a fight broke out among around 10 foreigners who were working on the construction site.

During the fight, the 23-year-old main suspect appears to have pulled out a knife and twice stabbed his 20-year-old colleague in the back of his shoulder.

An ambulance was called to the site and took the worker to Limassol general hospital, where he immediately underwent surgery.
