A 24-year-old man has appeared in court after a teenager was allegedly attacked with a meat cleaver in Lowestoft.
Simon Gibb, of Clapham Road North in Lowestoft, was remanded in custody after being charged with GBH with intent and possession of a meat cleaver in a public place following an incident in the town.
Police were contacted about 1am on Saturday, June 17, after a young man was reportedly attacked with a meat cleaver in Avondale Road.
