A 42-year-old man charged with four counts of attempted murder against two women and two men, has appeared in the Dunedin District Court this afternoon over the stabbing attack at a supermarket yesterday.
He’s been remanded in custody without plea.
The accused, flanked by four guards, was dressed in a prison gown and kept his head down throughout the proceedings.
He’s described as being of no fixed abode on the charge sheet and his lawyer did not seek a formal mental health assessment.
Judge Peter Rollo has granted him interim name suppression until his next appearance in the High Court on June 1.
