A teenager appeared in court yesterday charged with stabbing a 13-year-old boy in Shawlands.

The 15-year-old allegedly carried out the attack on Monday afternoon, a few hundred yards from Shawlands Academy.

Emergency services were called and the boy was taken to hospital to receive treatment for a knife injury.

The 15-year-old made no plea to the charge of assault to severe injury. He was granted bail with no further court date set.

Neither teenager can be identified as they are both under 18.
