A teenager charged with the attempted murder of a man stabbed in London Fields will enter his plea next month.
On March 9, a 23-year-old man suffered non life-threatening injuries after being stabbed in broad daylight on Pownall Road.
Two teenagers - aged 18 and 17 respectively - were originally charged in connection; proceedings have since been discontinued against the 18-year-old.
The Crown Prosecution Service is continuing its case against the 17-year-old boy, who has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in relation to the incident.
He appeared at the Old Bailey on June 6 and today - Tuesday, June 21 - where it was confirmed that a plea and trial preparation hearing will take place on July 8.
The accused, who cannot be named due to his age, has been remanded in custody until that date.
