A 72-year-old Cedar man charged with attempted murder after an incident in Ladysmith’s south end last month will be in court again on May 31.
Local RCMP responded to a call on April 19 at 2:20 pm after a report that the accused had allegedly tried to run over another man following a dispute.
Both the accused and 52-year-old victim are known to each other.
Police confirmed the man had allegedly tried to ram his vehicle before fleeing the scene on foot.
He was arrested a short time later by the responding officers.
The victim escaped with only minor injuries.
Calvin Buchanan is charged with attempt murder and two counts of assault with a weapon.
He remains behind bars pending his next court appearance next Wednesday where he will elect his mode of trial, whether by judge or jury.
