A MAN is due to face a crown court trial after armed police responded to an alleged knife attack at a Lymington home on Saturday evening.

Ross Neilson (39), of Broadly Close, Pennington, appeared before Southampton magistrates on Monday accused of wounding Miles Filose with intent and threatening the same man with a blade/sharply pointed article in a public place.

The alarm was raised around 6.10pm, and a force helicopter was dispatched, along with a dog unit, to support the officers as they swooped on the property in Lower Buckland Road and carried out a search.

The Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance was among the paramedic teams that responded to the incident.

They treated a local man at the scene for wounds to his head, but he did not need to be taken to hospital.

A Hampshire Police spokesperson said his injuries were not thought to have been serious.

No pleas were issued to either of the charges and Neilson was remanded in custody to appear at Bournemouth Crown Court for trial on 11th April.
