The alleged attacker of the London Central Mosque stabbing in February will return to court in May.
Daniel Horton, 29, will appear at Southwark Crown Court on May 26 for a plea hearing charged with GBH and possession of a bladed article.
Horton, who is homeless, was remanded in custody ahead of the hearing.
He was first charged on February 21 and appeared in Westminster Magistrates’ Court the next day.
On February 20, Raafat Maglad, 70, was treated in hospital for stab injuries after being injured at London Central Mosque in Regent’s Park.
Mr Maglad, known as the muezzin - the person who makes the call to prayer - returned to the mosque for Friday prayers, less than 24 hours after the incident.
