A TEENAGER has denied carrying out a racially motivated assault on a woman.

At South East Northumberland Magistrates' Court on March 17, Jordan Armstrong (19), of Tyne View Close, Haydon Bridge, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

It is alleged he assaulted the woman in Corbridge on October 27 last year, and the attack was racially aggravated.

Armstrong is accused of assaulting the same woman on two other occasions, again in Corbridge on October 27 and in Wark on October 8. He denied these two charges too.

He denied a fourth charge of sending a Snapchat video on September 16 to the same woman and its contents were indecent of offensive which caused her distress or anxiety.

Armstrong is due to stand trial on May 14.
