Attempted murder behind foreign man’s stabbing in Paphos

A 46-year-old foreign man who is a permanent resident of Paphos was still in critical condition on Monday at the coastal town’s General Hospital where he was admitted two days earlier.

Police said investigations in the case which appears to be related to attempted murder are ongoing.

The severely injured man was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit with wounds in the abdomen, bruising on the arm and mouth area, a perforation of the small intestine and kidney failure.

He told police that an unknown person to him, who seems to also be a foreigner, had stabbed him in Kato Paphos, at Apostolou Pavlou Avenue, in the early hours of Thursday.

The victim also said that he was on foot at the time and tried to stop a car so as to catch a ride.  A dark coloured car with unknown registration plates had stopped and the co-driver got out and allegedly asked him for money.

The 46-year-old refused to give him any, an argument ensued and according to the complainant the unknown man attacked him with a knife and injured him grievously. The co-river then got back in the car which sped away.

The 46-year-old also told police that he then continued walking to his home and did not visit a hospital immediately because he thought his injuries were not that serious. But on Saturday morning, after his condition deteriorated, he decided to seek medical help.

Police believe the two men in the car were in their mid-thirties, dark-skinned with short hair, and possibly of Bulgarian origin.
