A British tourist has been killed in a knife attack in Cyprus after stepping in to defend a fellow British girl who was being harassed. The assailants have been described as “foreign nationals”. A second victim was injured in the attack.
George Low, 22, was enjoying a night out at the end of a week’s holiday in the Cypriot town of Ayia Napa when he allegedly stepped in to stop a group of men who were “disrespecting and harassing” an English girl.
Mr Low is said to have told them “that’s enough.” Two of the men disappeared, only to return twenty minutes later with a knife, the Guardian has reported.
Mr Low was stabbed in the neck as he walked down Grigori Afxentiou Street, a busy main road, severing an artery. His friend Ben Parker, also 22, was stabbed four times in the back but is expected to make a full recovery.
