A man has denied attempting to murder four people, including a 10-year-old schoolboy in Leicester.
Carlos Vinodchandra Racitalal appeared at Leicester Crown Court today. He was arrested in January after an attack on a 10-year-old boy in Belper Street.
Racitalal denies four charges of attempting to murder, including driving a vehicle into a child.
The 32-year-old from Leicester has been accused of attacking a woman in her thirties and a man in his seventies. Both victims were stabbed and needed hospital treatment.
He is also accused of stabbing a schoolboy who was with his mother. The child sustained injuries to his throat and required hospital treatment.
Police have also charged Racitalal of attempting to murder a child in a road traffic collision in Exploration Drive.
He is also accused of three counts of possessing a knife blade or sharp pointed article in a public place on 14, 16 and 18 January.
Racitalal was remanded in custody and will reappear at Leicester Crown Court later in April.
