A six month old baby is in hospital in a stable condition, following a shocking incident in Enniskillen.
The community has been left shocked following the incident in the residential Castle coole Road area of the county town, which led to the arrest of 20-year-old Timuras Kozlov.
Kozlov appeared before Omagh Magistrates Court yesterday (Tuesday) charged with the attempted murder of the baby boy in Enniskillen at the weekend.
Timuras Kozlov, from Derrychara Drive in the town, has denied the allegation in a number of police interviews and in court claimed the incident leading to the charge was an “accident.”
Details of the alleged offence were not outlined in court.
The baby boy, believed to be about six months old, is in a stable condition at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.
He sustained serious injuries at an address on Castlecoole Road in Enniskillen on Saturday evening around 9pm.
The flat which is situated close to the Model Primary School was cordoned off from Saturday night, until Monday afternoon, while the PSNI carried out investigations.
Kozlov, who is originally from Lithuania, was brought to the dock from the court cells by prison officers. He was dressed in a grey polo top and grey tracksuits bottoms.
The court proceedings were relayed to him through a translator and he only spoke to confirm that he understood the charge.
A detective constable said she could connect Kozlov to the offence. She also confirmed that Kozlov had co-operated with police since his arrest and during four interviews maintained that the incident was an accident.
Defence solicitor Gary Smyth said his client had no previous convictions in this jurisdiction or Lithuania.
The court was also told the defendant is employed locally.
No application was made for bail and Kozlov was remanded into custody to appear before Enniskillen Magistrates Court by videolink on Monday, May 22.
