A MAN charged with attempted murder over an alleged Samurai sword attack is due to enter a plea in May.
Wayne Dujon appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court yesterday accused of stabbing Kevin Wilcox, 41, at a flat in Lee-on-the-Solent.
The 29-year-old, of no fixed abode, was one of three men arrested after police were called to the flat near the Discount Dry Cleaners store in the High Street just after 1am on Saturday, February 5.
As reported in The News, Mr Wilcox suffered serious wounds to his face and hands in an attack.
He was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham, Portsmouth, where he underwent surgery.
Police say he is making a good recovery.
Dressed in a blue polo shirt and jeans Dujon spoke only to confirm his identity.
Judge Richard Price adjourned the case until May 23.
If Dujon, who was remanded in custody, pleads not guilty on that date his trial will take place in June.
The two other men arrested at the time of the incident – aged 27 and 29 – have been released on bail until May 4 pending further police inquiries.
