A Ballarat man charged with attempted murder has been committed to strand trail in the County Court in mid October.
Ty Ranger, 23, has been charged with attempted murder.
He was also charged with intentionally causing serious injury, false imprisonment, child stealing and assault in November after an alleged stabbing of a five-year-old girl at Mitchell Park.
Ranger appeared at the Ballarat Magistrates Court on Thursday morning.
Magistrate Kay Robertson ordered Ranger to appear in the County Court for a date which was yet to be set in October.
The court was previously told Ranger, who has cerebral palsy, has significant physical disabilities.
The decision by Ms Robertson followed a committal mention earlier this year.
