A 15-year-old boy has been accused of causing grievous bodily harm by stabbing a man in the chest in a Suffolk town on Boxing Day.
The teenager, who can not be named because of his age, appeared in custody at Suffolk Magistrates' Court, in Ipswich, on Monday.
He was charged with unlawfully and maliciously causing grievous bodily harm to an adult male in Haverhill last Thursday night.
Prosecutor Wayne Ablett said the alleged victim received a single stab wound to the right side of the abdomen.
He said the man suffered a broken rib and a punctured lung, diaphragm and liver.
