Two men have appeared in court accused of repeatedly stabbing a man, resulting in a stand-off with police in Perth.

Martin Reilly, 38, and Kristopher Zdrzalek, 28, are alleged to have endangered David Goldie's life by attacking him with a bladed instrument.

Prosecutors allege Mr Goldie, 37, was left seriously injured and scarred for life as a result of the incident on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Both men made no plea at Perth Sheriff Court and were remanded in custody.

They appeared in private on a petition alleging they had repeatedly struck Mr Goldie on the body, face and head, with a weapon at Grampian Court.

It is alleged that "over the course of several hours" they refused entry to three police officers and barricaded themselves into the property.

Mr Reilly faces a third charge alleging he assaulted three police officers as they arrested him by throwing a spanner and metal bar at them.
