An elderly man was arrested on Monday night after knifing another man following a row at a Nicosia clubhouse.
According to police, the incident occurred following a heated argument between the 79-year-old and his 58-year-old victim. Witnesses say the elderly man, reportedly angry after accusing the 58-year-old’s wife of stealing money from his pocket, pulled a knife out of his pocket and attacked the man. The victim’s wife was working in the kitchen of the clubhouse in the Aglandja area of Nicosia.
Police who were called to the scene placed the 79-year-old under arrest and escorted him to Aglandja police station where he was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon, threatening behaviour and assault with a dangerous weapon before being released. He will appear in court at a later date.
