A 26-year-old man was charged today with three attempted sexual assaults in one night in Beverly Hills, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney David Berger said Joshua Daniel Stevens (dob 6/12/91) of Los Angeles faces three counts each of assault with intent to commit a sex crime and false imprisonment by violence.

Case SA096100 includes allegations that Stevens was convicted in 2016 of terroristic threatening in Baxter, Ark.

The defendant pleaded not guilty today to the charges and is scheduled to return on Aug. 22 in Department 31 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Airport Branch.

Stevens is charged with assaulting two separate women as they walked to their vehicles in parking garages and a third woman walking on a sidewalk on July 20, the prosecutor said. All three victims managed to escape, the prosecutor added.

Bail is scheduled at $385,000. Stevens faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 23 years in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
