A judge set a trial date for the runway model on January 5 with a possibility of a ruling at that time.
Reedus exited the court through a back door before getting into a vehicle with his attorney. He made no comment.
Reedus is accused of assaulting the woman after they got into an argument at the street festival in Little Italy.
The alleged victim, who Reedus did not know, was rushed to a hospital and treated for facial injuries.
The incident came just a week after Reedus made his Vogue cover debut, where he could be seen in Hommes Paris’ fall-winter 2021-2022 alongside Parker Van Noord, son of the late male model Andre Van Noord.

Mingus is Christensen’s only child.
The Danish supermodel regularly shares snaps on social media showing the close bond she has with her son, who has been modeling since 2017.

In April, he starred in a Victoria’s Secret Mother’s Day campaign with his mother.
