A MAN has appeared in court after a woman was stabbed in a Portsmouth street.

Flanked by dock officers Dler Mohammed, 42, spoke only to confirm his identity through an interpreter.

Mohammed, of no fixed address, is charged with the attempted murder of a 35-year-old woman on Saturday in London Road.

District judge Anthony Callaway adjourned the case to Portsmouth Crown Court on August 8.

He said: ‘You’re remanded in the custody of the crown court until that time.’

Mohammed, who was in handcuffs and dressed in grey tracksuit, was led down to the cells.

It comes after police said the woman was stabbed in the back in London Road, North End, on Saturday.

A second man, 41, from Portsmouth, was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder but has been released without charge and faces no further action.
