A MAN HAS appeared in court in Perth charged in connection with the stabbing of a young Irishman in the western Australian city of Perth at the weekend.

The 21-year-old was reportedly stabbed in the neck at around 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon at Helmsley Street in Scarborough, Perth.

The victim was rushed to a local hospital where he is said to be in a critical condition and PerthNow reports that the man is originally from Wexford but has been living in the area for the last several years.

The Department of Foreign Affairs is providing consular assistance to the man’s family, some of whom are reported to have travelled to Australia.

A 32-year-old man appeared before Perth Magistrates Court yesterday charged in connection with the incident. He was remanded to appear again before the court later this month.
