A man attempted to kill the woman he claims to love.

Because the woman refused his advances, Yilmaz Akdogan went to the woman’s work place in Famagusta. There he threatened her with a 28 cm knife and attempted to throttle her.

A passer-by saw the incident and intervened to incapacitate Mr Akdogan, who was arrested by police.

Initially Mr Akdogan attempted to contest the charge of attempted murder but then confessed and pointed out where he had hidden his knife.

Famagusta court has ordered that he be held while police conclude their inquiries.
