An 18-year-old man accused of wounding a man in Gore has been refused bail.

Hawera Johnson, who until today had interim name suppression, appeared before Judge Christina Cook in the Invercargill District Court this morning. He faces one charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm on February 16.

His lawyer David Slater applied for bail this morning, which was opposed by police.

Judge Cook denied the application for bail and remanded him in custody without plea until March 18.

The charge relates to an incident that left another man in Dunedin Hospital with serious head injuries.
