A Belfast teenager was remanded in custody today accused of a knife attack on his mother.
Lewis Goodall, 18, allegedly turned violent at their Donard Street home on Saturday.
The defendant, a mechanic, appeared before Belfast Magistrates' Court charged with attempting to cause grievous bodily harm to his mother.
He also faces a second count of possessing an offensive weapon, namely a knife, with intent to commit an indictable offence.
A PSNI constable said he could connect Goodall to the alleged offences.
No further details of the incident were disclosed.
With no alternative address available at this stage, a defence solicitor confirmed he was not yet seeking bail.
District Judge George Conner remanded Goodall in custody to appear again by video-link on Friday. ends
