A man is set to appear in court next month in connection with a stabbing in Norfolk.
Police were called to playing fields off Riversway, in North Lynn, on Tuesday afternoon, after reports a man had been stabbed.
The man was taken to hospital with serious injuries where he remains in a stable condition.
Philip Hodgkinson, 35, of no fixed address, has since been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of a knife.
He appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court earlier this month.
Hodgkinson is due to appear at Norwich Crown Court on August 6 for a plea and trial preparation hearing.
The Kingsway Pavilion, which stands in the playing fields between Riversway and the A1078 Edward Benefer Way, opposite Lynn North fire station and the St Edmunds Academy, was cordoned off by police as detectives investigated the incident earlier this month.
