A pensioner has appeared in court charged with GBH.

Chrysanthos Soteriou, 71, of Daisy Dobbing Walk, off Jessie Blythe Lane, Hornsey Rise, appeared at Blackfriars Crown Court on March 9 charged with GBH with intent.

Soteriou was arrested after police found a 62-year-old man bleeding in the street following a knife attack in broad daylight last month.

Police rushed to Daisy Dobbings Walk on Thursday at about 2.30pm where they found the 62-year-old victim with stab wounds to his stomach.

He was taken to a north London hospital where police said he underwent surgery - he is now in serious but non life-threatening condition.

One witness described a white forensics tent being erected by police and London’s Air Ambulance circling overhead.
