A 23-year-old is to go on trial charged with attempted murder after a man was stabbed in Norwich.

Rahein Phillips appeared at Norwich Crown Court having been charged with attempted murder, causing grievous bodily harm with intent and having an offensive weapon, a Rambo-style knife.

It follows an incident in Bolingbroke Road, Mile Cross, Norwich, on May 13 this year when a man in his 30s was stabbed.

The victim was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and treated for serious stab wounds to his stomach.

Phillips, from London, appeared at court on Wednesday (November 25) when he entered not guilty pleas to all three charges.
