A teenager accused of attacking a man with a knife made no application for bail when he appeared in court to face his charge for the first time.

Flynn Crowther Donohue was charged with intentionally inflicting grievous bodily harm when he appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday (18 July).

The 18-year-old from Reid made no application for bail, nor did he enter a plea to his charge.

Special Magistrate Sean Richter remanded him in custody and adjourned the matter to 8 August.
