A man has denied a racially aggravated assault following an incident in Bury St Edmunds.
William Bone, 21, appeared before magistrates in Ipswich on Monday via video link and pleaded not guilty to racially aggravated assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
The alleged incident took place in Bury St Edmunds' town centre on Friday, February 7 around 8.10pm.
Lesla Small, prosecuting, made a submission that the offence was suitable to be heard in magistrates' court.
But magistrates declined jurisdiction and the case was sent to the crown court.

Magistrates granted Bone bail with conditions including an electronically tagged curfew and not to contact the alleged victim.
