The trial of a 16-year-old boy who was arrested in connection with the stabbing of another teenager in Ipswich last month is due to take place in October.
The 17-year-old victim suffered a one inch wound to his back during the alleged attack in Cemetery Road, Ipswich, at around 7.55pm on April 9.
He was taken to hospital for treatment and released the same day.
Today the 16-year-old boy who can’t be identified because of his age, pleaded not guilty at a plea and trial preparation hearing at Ipswich Crown Court to an offence of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm on April 9.
He also denied an offence of assault by beating and possessing an article with a blade.
