DOWNTOWN L.A. — The man suspected of stabbing three homeless people and leaving what police called “death warrants” at the crime scenes plead not guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, officials said.
A spokesperson in the District Attorney’s Office said that Courtney Anthony Robinson, 37, was being held on $3 million bail.
His next court date is Aug. 6, and he does not yet have an attorney.
Robinson was charged with three counts of attempted murder in connection with the stabbings of two homeless men in their 50s and one woman in her 40s.
All three victims were sleeping, one on a bus bench at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Sixth Street in Santa Monica.
Robinson allegedly left death warrants at the scene of each of the attacks, which occurred on July 3 in Downtown L.A., July 17 in Santa Monica and July 19 in Hollywood.
He surrendered Friday evening to Los Angeles Police officers in Hollywood.
If convicted, he faces up to life in prison, according to a release from the District Attorney’s Office.
