A teenager must go to crown court to face a charge of grievous bodily harm without intent.
Kieran Storey, 19, of Almond Grove, Grantham, is accused of unlawfully and maliciously assaulting a man in Grantham on July 21.
He also faces two charges of assault by beating against two other people on the same date in Grantham.
Mr Storey made no plea and Grantham magistrates adjourned the case to February 24 at Lincoln Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.
Mr Storey was granted bail on condition he made no contact with five named people.
