A 31-YEAR-OLD Wiveliscombe man charged with attempted murder after an alleged stabbing in the town early on New Year’s Day has appeared before Bristol Crown Court.

Jacob Davey, of Langley Cross, has been accused of attempted murder and possession of a knife in a public place following an incident at an address in Tuckers Meadow, Wiveliscombe, about 6.15am.

Davey was remanded in custody and will appear again at Bristol Crown Court on April 22 for a case management hearing. A provisional date for his trial has been set for June 20.

After the incident on New Year’s Day, an Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: “A man in his 30s required hospital treatment for stab wounds sustained in the incident.”

The spokesman added that the injuries were ‘thankfully’ not life-threatening.
