Abdulahi Hasan Sharif faces 12 charges related to a Sept. 30 attack outside a football game.

The Crown added another charge of aggravated assault today.

Sharif was in court, but he did not enter a plea.

Lawyers for both the Crown and defence waived a preliminary hearing, so the case is being moved to Court of Queen's Bench to set a trial date.

Sharif is to be back in court on May 4.

Some of the charges stem from a police pursuit of a speeding cube van that hit and injured four pedestrians in downtown Edmonton hours after the police officer was attacked.

The first psychiatric assessment found Sharif is currently fit to stand trial.

The second assessment found he was not suffering from any mental-health issues at the time of his alleged involvement in the attack.
