A man hit another man in the head with a claw hammer on a city street, it has been alleged.
Roman Wunderlich (51) is accused of having the weapon during an incident in which he allegedly hit the man while holding him in a headlock.
Judge Bryan Smyth adjourned the case at Dublin District Court.
Mr Wunderlich, of Nugget Cottages, Bluebell, is charged with possession of a weapon.
A garda sergeant said the alleged incident happened on Dorset Street in the north inner city at 7.45pm last September 9.
It was alleged the accused had a claw hammer in his hand, had a "gentleman in a headlock" and struck that man in the head.
There was no complaint of assault made against the accused.
The judge accepted jurisdiction to deal with the case at district court level.
A summary of the prosecution's evidence has been furnished to the defence.
Mr Wunderlich's solicitor, Tony Collier, asked for a one-month adjournment.
Judge Smyth remanded the defendant on continuing bail to a date next month to indicate how he intends pleading.
