The 29-year-old accused was admitted to Auckland City Hospital in a critical but stable condition following the incident.
He remained under police guard at the hospital and had his first court hearing with Judge Josephine Bouchier from a hospital bed on March 26.
Another person who was hospitalised with superficial injuries following the March 19 attack has been discharged and interviewed by detectives.
