A 17-year-old who can not be identified because of his age appeared at Coleraine court this morning charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of possessing an offensive weapon with intent to commit an indictable offence has been remanded into custody at the Juvenile Justice centre until 11 February.

This morning the court heard that one woman sustained a “punctured lung” and “a number of stab wounds”, while the second received four stab wounds.

The police officer said the women, both aged 22, were making a “reasonable recovery” with one discharged from Causeway Hospital.

A defence lawyer told the court this morning that his client has denied the offence. No bail application was made.

The teenage boy spoke only to confirm his name and that he understood the charges. He will appear before the court again via video link next month.
