A man carried out a series of “calculated and deliberate” attacks, including stabbing a 10-year-old boy in the neck and driving a car into a five-year-old girl, a court has heard.
Carlos Vinodchandra Racitalal, 33, formerly of Finsbury Road, Leicester, is alleged to have attacked the boy while his mother was parking her car.
Mr Racitalal is accused of a series of attacks in the city between 2 and 18 January.
He denies four attempted murder counts.
Leicester Crown Court heard Mr Racitalal, who is also facing three counts of possession of a bladed article, approached the boy on 18 January.
“The defendant came along the pavement and put a hand on [the boy’s] shoulder and then drew a knife across [his] neck, cutting it open,” said Christopher Donnellan QC, prosecuting. […]
The defendant is also alleged to have driven a black Corsa into the back of a five-year-old child who was holding her grandfather’s hand in an Asda car park off Abbey Lane on 2 January.
“She was launched forward into another car and fell to the ground,” Mr Donnellan said.
“The defendant was driving. It wasn’t an accident. It was calculated and deliberate.”
The jury heard the little girl suffered injuries to her nose and chin.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has been successful in verifying all materials reviewed so far from Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, the Daily Caller has learned.
Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson will not call Bobulinski to testify before the November 3 elections, as the committee is working to review all the information provided to the committee by Bobulinski. The information has to be verified, as it is subject to the same false information to Congress laws that verbal or written testimony does. However, a Johnson spokesperson told the Caller that all the material provided by Bobulinski that has been reviewed so far has turned out to be legitimate. The committee has “also” not come across any “signs” or evidence to suggest the content is false, the spokesperson added.
