Teen skateboard assault suspect appears in court

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Gresham teen accused of attacking a Portland Outdoor Store employee faced a judge Wednesday. 

Daniel Dorson, 18, pleaded not guilty to an assault charge. The judge set his bail at $250,000. 

Police arrested Dorson earlier this month in California. He was extradited to Oregon Tuesday. 

Police say Dorson hit 70-year-old Larry Allen over the head with a skateboard in July. The blow knocked Allen unconscious, and he was taken to the hospital. 

Through leads, detectives identified Dorson as a suspect. 

His trial is set to begin in December.
