Laganside Court houseAN 18 year old man has been remanded in custody charged over an incident in which three men were stabbed.

Gareth McAllister, of Rogan Manor, Newtownabbey, faced a total of ten counts when he appeared at Belfast Magistrates’ Cour today.

He was charged with attempted murder, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, assault on four police officers, criminal damage and possession of bread knife.

Police said a 20 year old man sustained a serious cut to his forehead after he was attacked with a knife at a house on Antrim Road in Glengormley at around 11pm on Wednesday night

His 51 year old father and his 74 year old grandfather sustained cuts to their hands after they were chased from the property by the suspect and attacked close to a local petrol station.

The arrested male was detained at the scene by responding officers.

No bail was applied for today and McAllister was remanded in custody for a week.

Earlier this week, Detective Sergeant John McKendry said: “We believe this incident started at an address before moving a short distance down the road to the garage.

“This is a busy area and we are keen to speak with witnesses or anyone with information that could assist the investigation.

“Detectives can be contacted at the offices of Newtownabbey Reactive and Organised Crime by calling 101.

“If someone would prefer to provide information without giving their name they can contact the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
