A Wembley man accused of attempting to murder four police officers during a stabbing frenzy in Kingsbury will stand trial in April.
Christopher Alexander Houghton, 32, of Milford Gardens, is charged with attacking the four policemen after they were called to a disturbance in Kingsbury Road, on November 19 last year.
The officers, who are all based in Harrow, were taken to hospital where one, in his 20s, suffered a stab wound to his stomach; a second, also in his 20s, suffered head injuries and a stab wound to the arm; the third, in his 30s, was treated for a stab wound to the leg and the fourth was treated for a broken hand.
Houghton will appear before the Old Bailey for a plea and case management on February 27.
He is charged with four counts of attempted murder of a police officer, two counts of Actual Bodily Harm on a police officer and the attempted Grievous Bodily Harm on a police officer.
His trial has been set for April 16.
