A Donegal man appeared before Londonderry Magistrates Court accused of an assault.
John Paul McGowan (28), of Millglen, Moville, faces a charge of grievous bodily harm relating to an alleged incident on September 19, last year.
An investigating officer told the court he believed he could connect McGowan to the charge.
The accused was released on conditional bail to appear in court again on March 20. In the interim, he is banned from contacting the alleged injured party and being drunk in public place.
