LOS ANGELES (AP) – A man has pleaded not guilty to attacking eight people on Los Angeles County transit buses.

Twenty-four-year-old Hector Resendez entered pleas Tuesday to 13 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, battery and attempted murder.

He could face multiple life sentences if convicted.

Prosecutors say he attacked passengers on Metro buses last month, stabbing several with a screwdriver. Several victims were treated at hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.

There’s no word on what motivated the attacks.
