Daniel Delaney, 18, is also accused of robbing the wounded man and trying to destroy evidence by washing clothing.

The allegations relate to a reported knife attack at Ardglen Place in the Ardoyne area on April 5. Police said a man in his twenties approached them on nearby Etna Drive, claiming he had been stabbed while stopped in a car.

Delaney, of Elimgrove Street in the city, appeared remotely at Belfast Magistrates’ Court today on a charge of attempted murder.

He faces further counts of possessing an offensive weapon - namely a knife - with intent to commit an indictable offence, and robbing the man of a phone, cigarettes and money.

District Judge Mark Hamill then remanded Delaney in custody, to appear again by video-link on August 20
