A man has denied causing grievous bodily harm with intent and having a knife in Dereham Road in Norwich.
Marcello Carvalho, 21, appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Wednesday and denied a charge of wounding with intent and having a knife in a public place.
Carvalho, from Ipswich, also denied a charge of racially aggravated harassment.
The offences are said to have happened between June 15 and 18 last year.
Carvalho was represented by Matthew McNiff at the short hearing.
