**Updated** Man charged with attempted murder to undergo psychiatric assessment

**Updated at 9:30 a.m. on January 10th**

A 30-year-old Fredericton man charged with attempted murder has been sent for a five-day psychiatric assessment.

Clarke Stephen Yeomans appeared in provincial court on Tuesday following the charges on Monday, which also include unlawful confinement and aggravated assault.

The Daily Gleaner reports a bail hearing for Yeomans was scheduled, but defence lawyer John Bird asked for a 30-day assessment at the Restigouche Hospital Centre in Campbellton.

Judge Julian Dickson ordered a five-day assessment instead, and scheduled the bail hearing for January 23rd.

The paper quotes Bird as saying Yeomans is currently being held in the suicide watch unit in Saint John Correctional, and that he's hallucinating and hearing voices.

Officers responded to a service call at a northside residence on Sunday, and police said in a news release on Monday that the victim was taken to hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
