A 39-year-old city man has been charged over a stabbing in Cowley Road on Tuesday.

Mohammed Nazir, of Cowley Road, was arrested yesterday and charged today with a count each of grievous bodily harm with intent, possession of a knife blade or sharp pointed article in a public place and possession of cannabis or cannabis resin.

It was in connection with an incident in which a 25-year-old victim was attacked after leaving the Simpli Fresh store at about 9.10pm.

He was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital but his injuries were not reported to be life-threatening.

Nazir was remanded in custody and was due to appear this morning at Oxford Magistrates' Court.
