A Penhold man has pleaded not guilty to the two assault charges he is facing in connection with an anti-racism rally in Red Deer last September.
Trevor Lyle Roy, then-42, was first charged with assault on Oct. 7 in relation to an incident at a Sept. 20 anti-racism rally at Rotary Recreation Park.
RCMP said there was a clash between two groups before the event started, as organizers were setting up.
It is alleged that Roy was shown on video in an altercation with protesters.
Police said a review of multiple videos from the event led to another assault charge for Roy, which was laid about two weeks after the first charge.
A trial date is expected to be set for Roy on June 15.
Taylor Michelle McNallie, of Calgary, is also accused of assault. She has pleaded not guilty and has a trial scheduled for Nov. 3 in Red Deer.
