A Kenton man accused of trying to kill two strangers in a random knife attack in Kingsbury will stand trial in December.

Anton Allain, 20, of Lodge Avenue, allegedly stabbed a 34 year-old man on a 183 bus and then knifed a 28 year-old man in the back in a nearby Tesco store in Kingsbury Road.

The attacks happened on July 13 this year.

Allain appeared at the Old Bailey today by video link from Belmarsh for a plea and case management hearing.

The court heard that Allain has a long history of paranoid schizophrenia and may have to be transferred from prison to a psychiatric hospital.

He is charged with the attempted murder of Anand Patel and Samir Rami, two alternative counts of grievous bodily harm with intent, and a single count of having an offensive weapon.

He did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody until a mention hearing on 4 October.
