A MAN has appeared in court charged with attempted murder after a man was stabbed in Ipswich.

Damien Brauer, 20, of Woodbridge Road, spoke only to confirm his name during a hearing at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

The charge relates to an incident in the early hours of Sunday May 27 when 19-year-old Matthew Buckman, of Kesgrave, was assaulted in an alleyway off Upper Brook Street.

Mr Buckman suffered serious injuries and was at one point fighting for his life at Addenbrooke's Hospital.

He is currently said to be in a stable condition.

No application for bail was made and Brauer, originally of Poland, was remanded in custody until a further hearing at Ipswich Crown Court on June 14. He did not enter a plea at today's hearing.
