According to the police, the woman had been visiting friends when she was attacked outside the house by the suspect, also from Nicosia. The 31-year-old allegedly started verbally abusing the plaintiff, before grabbing her by the dress and dragging her across the road, resulting in a series of injuries.

The suspect, according to the young woman, then grabbed her by the throat and threatened her with a knife, before slashing her knee.

The victim was taken to Nicosia General Hospital where she was treated. She was still in hospital late yesterday afternoon, with doctors saying she would be kept in for observation, due to the severity of some of her injuries.

The 31-year-old was arrested on Sunday night and questioned. Nicosia District Court yesterday ordered his three-day remand, while Nicosia CID continues to investigate.
