Man in court over Christmas day stabbing
A man in his 50s will appear before Midleton District Court this morning after being charged with assault at a residence in Cork on Christmas Day.
Shortly after 4.30pm on 25 December, gardaí were called to the scene of a domestic incident at a residence at Banteer.
A woman, also in her 50s, was removed from the scene by ambulance to CUH for treatment to apparent stab wounds.
Her injuries were described as serious but not life threatening.
The accused man was located near the scene a short time later and was also taken to hospital for medical treatment.
The scene was preserved for examination and gardaí are not seeking anyone else in relation to the incident.
Enquires are ongoing.
