DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A Dubuque man accused of trying to stab a man and punching a police officer has pleaded not guilty.

18-year-old Tremaine Walton, Jr. faces charges including attempted murder and assault causing serious injury to a police officer.

The charges stem from a fight on April 27 outside a bar. Police say surveillance video shows Walton trying to stab a man and then punching the officer when she tried to break up the fight.

The officer suffered a concussion and a fractured jaw.

Walton pleaded not guilty on Monday in Dubuque County District Court.  His trial is set for July 9.
