Syed Shah, 26, accused of attempted murder early April appeared in a Guelph courtroom on Wednesday morning for a bail hearing via video.

Shah was dressed in an orange t-shirt in his video appearance in the Wyndham Street courthouse.

The judge granted the request of Shah’s defence counsel to move the bail hearing to May 22 as they work on a bail plan.

Shah remains in custody.

On April 5 Guelph Police received a 3:30 a.m. emergency call for service in the area of Valleyview Drive.

Shah was charged with attempted murder after an adult female was found to be in medical distress with injuries that were considered to be life-threatening.

The woman was sent to the hospital and later to a trauma centre for treatment.

After an initial investigation, Shah was arrested and charged with attempted murder.
