The court heard he had not supported the prosecution.
 
Two other men are wanted in connection with the incident. One is known to police but the second has not been identified.
 
“There is a history of much lower level violence and this attack appears to have been at a level which leads me to think his risk must be assessed,” said Judge Charles Macdonald QC.
 
St Louis was remanded in custody for reports to assess dangerousness and he will be sentenced on October 9.
