A 32-year-old accused of attacking a homeless man with a socket wrench in a park could stand trial later this year.
Police were called to Park Road near Diss Mere Park, Diss, shortly after 9.40pm on August 17 last year following reports a man had been attacked by another man armed with a metal tool.
The victim, a 32-year-old homeless man, was taken to hospital for treatment following the attack.
Mark Stagg, of Viscount Close, Diss, has since been charged with wounding/inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent on August 17 last year.
He is also charged with possession of an offensive weapon, namely a socket wrench, at Diss Mere Park on the same date.
