The 18-year-old, who has interim name suppression, appeared in front of Justice Kit Toogood in the High Court at Auckland this morning.

His lawyer, Maria Pecotic, entered not guilty pleas to one charge of attempted murder and one charge of assault on his behalf.

The teenager is accused of stabbing an 18-year-old woman known to him, on Auckland's Anzac Avenue on 22 November.

Justice Toogood continued the man's interim name suppression and remanded him in custody until his next appearance date.
