Man remanded in custody accused of attempted murder after incident in Ballymena

A 32-year-old man has been remanded into custody after an incident in the Cushendall Road area of Ballymena on Sunday 27 February.

The charge against Damien Charzewski was heard this morning at Coleraine Magistrate‘s Court, sitting in Ballymena.

Charzewski did not appear in court himself. A police officer stated that he was being held in the Covid suite at Musgrave Street police station.

The detective constable told the court he believed he could connect Charzewski to the charge.

Defence counsel Michael Boyd stated while the defendant was "keen to apply for bail, we recognise that realistically it’s very unlikely that the court will grant bail because there’s no address".

No details were opened in court but it is understood that the charge is in relation to the incident on Sunday morning when a victim was stabbed a number of times near Charzewski’s home on the Cushendall Road, Ballymena.

Following the incident yesterday, which involved a police Armed Response Unit, and was attended by Northern Ireland Ambulance Service alongside Air Ambulance, police confirmed the victim‘s wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.

Remanding Charzewski into custody, District Judge Noel Dunlop adjourned the case to 24 March.
