Famagusta Police are looking into an incident that saw a 41-year-old Greek Cypriot end up in intensive care after being stabbed in what is believed to be a drug-related case.

According to Famagusta police spokesperson Steve Theodoulou, officers received a call reporting a knife attack around 7.30 am in Protaras.

The incident took place outside the man’s house.

Police told the Financial Mirror that the man was transported to the Famagusta General, where doctors intubated and operated on him.

The man received multiple wounds on various parts of his body.

At around 8.15 am Thursday, police received a call reporting a man seen carrying a knife at a nearby hotel.

When police arrived, the man attempted to flee by jumping off a four-metre wall.

However, he fell, fracturing his leg and also had to be taken to the Famagusta general.

The second man is a 38-year-old Greek Cypriot from Nicosia.

Both areas have been cordoned off by officers and treated as crime scenes.

The incidents are believed to be connected, and police are looking into the evidence, including the knife found in the second man’s possession.

Phileleftheros daily suggested that the two men had personal differences.

The drug squad assisted Famagusta police in its investigation as both men were known to the authorities.
