A 44-year-old man has appeared in court accused of attempted murder.
John Paul O’Rourke, of Canterbury Park, faces a total of eight offences in relation to an alleged incident in the early hours of July 20.
They include attempted murder, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, possession of a knife, attempted grievous bodily harm and making a threat to kill.
The incident allegedly occurred in the Summer Meadows Park area of the Waterside.
Derry Magistrates Court heard O’Rourke is a family friend of the alleged injured party.
The court also heard allegations that the injured party sustained three stab wounds to his back and remains in a stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit.
There was no bail application and the 44-year-old was remanded in custody.
He will appear in court again on August 14.
