A man is to stand trial accused of leaving his partner permanently injured after allegedly hitting her in the eye with a pole.
Daniel Lawson allegedly carried out the attack at a property in Aberdeen last November 15.
It is claimed the 39-year-old grabbed the woman by the hair and struck her on the head.
The indictment then states Lawson pushed her onto a bed before repeatedly attacking her on the body with a pole and also in the eye.
This is said to be to her severe injury as well as permanent disfigurement and impairment.
Lawson faces a separate charge of earlier assaulting the woman between 2013 and 2015 as well as behaving in a threatening manner towards her.
On Tuesday, Lawson’s legal team pled not guilty on his behalf during a hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.
Lord Matthews fixed a trial due to begin next June in Aberdeen.
Lawson, of Aberdeen, remains on bail.
