A 16 year old, who cannot be identified because of his age, was prosecuted for assault on October 2 last.
Sgt Jim Kelly said the attack was unprovoked.
He alleged the defendant, who was 15 at the time, punched the injured party a number of times. He stumbled backwards and fell and was then kicked on a number of occasions..
He said the victim sustained a black eye, bumps and abrasions.
Judge Desmond Zaidan said this was not a minor allegation and he adjourned the matter until June 10 for the preparation of a book of evidence.
