London Father Charged in Knife Attack on 5-Year-Old Daughter Due Back in Court on Friday London, Ontario, Canada / (CFPL AM) AM 980 May 21, 2015 07:16 am  

A London man charged with attempted murder in the stabbing of his five-year-old daughter is scheduled to make his next court appearance on Friday morning.

38-year-old Andrew Bruce Hill appeared briefly before a justice of the peace at the London courthouse on Thursday, and was remanded into custody.

Hill was visibly distraught as he buried his head in his hands, and covered his eyes. He could be seen trying to plug his ears while hearing a list of over a dozen names of people he may not communicate with while in custody, including his wife and three children.

He donned a neon green t-shirt that read, “Help, I’m Talking And I Can’t Shut Up!”

His 5-year-old daughter remained listed in “serious, but stable condition” as of Thursday morning, according to London Police.

She was rushed to hospital around 6:10 a.m. Tuesday after being stabbed multiple times at the family’s home on Applegreen Grove in the Commissioners and Andover area.

The little girl’s father was arrested at the scene, and charged later in the day with attempted murder.

The Major Crime Section is handling the investigation, and officers remain at the scene.

AM980 will have a reporter at the London courthouse on Friday when the suspect is next scheduled to appear via video.
