A 62-year-old man faced charges for allegedly attempting to stab his 36-year-son in Thessaloniki on Saturday.

According to the police, the incident took place in the courtyard of the northern port city’s Aghios Pavlos Hospital during an argument between the suspect, the victim and his sister over the medical expenses of their mother, who was being treated at the Thessaloniki facility.

A member of the EKAB emergency medical assistance team allegedly witnessed the scene and came to the victim’s aid when his father tried to attack him with a knife.
