A POTENTIAL trial date has been set for a man charged with attempted murder after a woman was stabbed outside an Oxford convenience store.

Jordan Anderson, of no fixed abode, appeared before Oxford Crown Court this morning and spoke only to confirm his name.

He sat slumped in the dock in a grey sweatshirt and grey tracksuit bottoms while his honour judge Peter Ross set a trial date for the defendant.

The 30-year-old is charged with one count of attempted murder, one count of stalking and invoking a fear of violence, and one count of possessing an offensive weapon - namely a kitchen knife - in a public place.

It comes after a woman in her 20s was stabbed outside the London Road supermarket on Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Anderson is expected to enter a plea before Oxford Crown Court on June 4, and a potential trial date has been set for August 19.
