Jaqueline Clarke, 57, suffered stab wounds to her stomach and arm during an attack in Parnell Road, Bow, on Sunday.

Jaqueline Ross, who is in her 60s, was stabbed in the stomach in Chariot Close on Friday evening, police said.

Mr Collingwood-Williams has also been charged with two counts of possession of an offensive weapon.

He was remanded in custody until 25 September when he will appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

Neither of the two women's injuries are life threatening.
