A 31-year-old has denied punching a man and leaving him permanently disfigured.
Philip Craig pled not guilty during a hearing at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday.
He faces a charge of punching a man to the head and knocking him to the ground to his injury and permanent disfigurement.
It is alleged the incident happened on July 7 on Union Street.
Craig, of North Anderson Drive, Aberdeen, had his case continued until next month for a pre-trial hearing.
