A Portadown man accused of possession of a knife and wounding with intent is to face the Crown Court later this month.
Kontautas appeared, assisted by a translator, for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry (PE), the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.
He is charged with possession of an offensive weapon, namely a knife, with intent to commit an indictable offence and wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
While the background of the charges was not outlined, court papers state that they are alleged to have occurred on August 6 this year.
When asked if he understood the charges, the defendant stated that he did.
The prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.
Defence counsel made no contrary submissions.
District Judge Anne Marshall, satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, remanded the defendant into custody and adjourned the cases to appear at Newry Crown Court on January 23.
