A 22-YEAR-OLD accused of attempting to murder another man with an axe in Croydon town centre appeared in court this morning (February 6).
Joshua Streeks,of Morland Road, Addiscombe, allegedly hit Liam O'Brien over the head with the axe in Park Street, outside the Bad Apple nightclub during the early hours of Wednesday, February 4.
He faces one count of attempted murder and another of possessing an offensive weapon, an axe, in a public place.
Streeks, who goes by the nickname 'biscuit', entered no plea to the two charges before the bench at Croydon Magistrates' Court and was remanded in custody.
Karem Hamali, chair of the bench, declined jurisdiction in the case, which means it will next be heard at Croydon Crown Court on February 20.
Streeks was arrested by Sussex Police at Gatwick Airport yesterday.
