BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) — A Brockton man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to accusations that he assaulted a man in a liquor store parking lot.

Brockton police responding to the area of Pleasant Street at around 10 p.m. Tuesday said they found a 54-year-old man seriously injured. The man was taken to Brockton Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
