Prosecutors today filed a criminal case against a man accused of carrying out a one-day crime spree involving four victims. One of them was a Los Angeles woman whom he allegedly stabbed, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Jason Faison, 22 (dob 9/25/91), pleaded not guilty this afternoon at the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Airport Branch. His bail was set at more than $1.4 million.

Faison faces 11 felony counts in case SA086079: Two counts each of second-degree robbery and identity theft; and one count each of attempted murder; assault with intent to commit a felony; first-degree residential burglary, person present; first-degree residential robbery; assault with a deadly weapon, Chevrolet Colorado truck; unlawful driving of a vehicle; and receiving stolen property.

The complaint includes allegations that the defendant used a knife and a car as deadly and dangerous weapons. It further alleges that Faison personally inflicted great bodily injury on one of the victims. The charging document also includes a prior felony conviction in 2012 stemming from Los Angeles County for first-degree burglary, person present.

Prosecutors claim that on Dec. 22 Faison stole a pick-up truck, then robbed a man at a gas station at knife point. The defendant allegedly went on to rob a woman at a restaurant and, when confronted, purportedly jumped into the stolen vehicle and accelerated, hitting a man. He then went on to follow a second woman home, where he allegedly stabbed the victim and robbed her.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
