Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Davies High School student is pleading "not guilty" to several charges today.

18-year-old Borris Dahn is charged with one count of felonious restraint, a felony, and three other misdemeanors of sexual assault, simple assault and disorderly conduct. He's accused of assaulting a 16-year-old girl at Davies High School.

Security cameras in the school captured Dahn slapping, hitting and throwing the girl to the ground. The girl says she suffered cuts on her face and hands, and bruises on her back.

Dahns attorney wants the terrorizing aspect of the felonious restraint removed, which would make the charge a misdemeanor.

Charles Sheeley, Attorney: “There are terrorizing circumstances here, and there are not, there are no threats of violence or there were no acts dangerous to human life, either to attempt or induce fear. Record establishes Borris was just trying to get his hat back.”

Dahn faces up to six years in prison, if convicted.
