Barrow man appears in court following stabbing allegation

A BARROW man has appeared in court today following an incident in which a 16-year-old girl suffered stabbing injuries.

Paul Christian Rapka, 19, of Newbarns Road, Barrow has been charged with wounding with intent, possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and theft.

He appeared before Furness Magistrates' Court today and entered no plea to the charges.

Proceedings were adjourned to Preston Crown Court on March 11 and Rapka was remanded in custody until that date. 

The charges follow an incident on Saturday when a 16-year-old local girl sustained injuries to her back.

The incident happened in St Lukes Avenue, next to the junction of Roose Road, at around 11.30pm.

She was taken to Furness General Hospital but was discharged shortly afterwards.
