The man charged with threatening to kill a person with a bomb at a Masterton Child, Youth and Family office last week has pleaded not guilty.

The accused, 32, appeared in court yesterday for the second time and was granted interim name suppression.

The charge document lists him as being of no fixed abode but from central Wellington.

He was arrested on April 28 a short distance from the Lincoln Rd building which houses Child, Youth and Family.

The building had been evacuated and the bomb squad from Wellington searched the area for an explosive device.

Through his lawyer, Chris Tennet, the accused has pleaded not guilty to threatening to kill.

Judge Peter Butler denied bail pending a psychiatric report and ordered a further psychiatric report to be completed before a case review hearing.

The accused will make another application for bail on April 14.
