A man faces trial after denying a stabbing attack at a South Tyneside Metro station stabbing.
David Sorlie is accused of attacking another man, at Jarrow, on October 14.
The 32-year-old has appeared at Newcastle Crown Court, via video link to HMP Durham, and pleaded not guilty to offences of wounding with intent and having an article with a blade or point.
Sorlie, of Grant Street, Jarrow, may be back in court for a further hearing next month.
A trial, which could last three days, could take place next year.
