Man 'cyber stalked victim before knife attack in home'
Aiden McKenna also faces allegations of supplying heroin over a one-year period.
An alleged knifeman is accused of cyber stalking a man for more than a month before attacking him.
Aiden McKenna, 23, will stand trial at Dundee Sheriff Court, where he will also face allegations of supplying heroin over the course of a year leading up to the incident.
McKenna is alleged to have "engaged in a course of conduct which caused Richard O'Hren fear or alarm" by repeatedly sending him text and social media messages and phone calls in which he threatened Mr O'Hren and his friends and family with violence.
McKenna is also alleged to have demanded money from Mr O'Hren.
On December 5 last year, McKenna is said to have visited a property on Priory Crescent in Arbroath, Angus, where Mr O'Hren was, and behaved in a threatening or abusive manner, entered uninvited, demanded money and acted aggressively.
He then allegedly pushed Mr O'Hren on the body before striking him on the head and body with a knife, all to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement.
Further charges accused McKenna of possessing a Stanley knife during the attack and supplying heroin between December 5, 2015 and December 5, 2016.
Sheriff Pino di Emidio set a trial date in November and released McKenna on bail meantime.
