Star DJ denies sex charges

Swedish dance DJ Basshunter has denied two charges of sexual assault against fans during an appearance at a Kirkcaldy nightclub.

The DJ, real name Jonas Erik Altberg, appeared at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court yesterday (Wednesday), where he pleaded not guilty to the allegations made against him at Kitty’s nightclub on December 10.

The 26-year-old, from Halmstad, is alleged to have grabbed a girl by the hair and pushed her head towards his private parts.

A second charge alleges he grabbed another girl by the hair and pushed her towards his private parts. He then allegedly forced her to bend over, pulled up her dress, seized hold of her underwear and pulled it, exposing her private parts, and slapped her on the body.

Altberg appeared in court with his manager, and was released on bail until he returns for trial in May.
