Los Angeles resident Deveon Deonteray Wilson pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to one count each of second-degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and carjacking, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.

Prosecutors are also alleging he used a wrench in beating the Uber driver, Alex Bermudez, inside his white Prius on Jan. 5.

In a Monday interview with KTLA, Bermudez said he was seriously injured in the incident and suffered a concussion, broken nose and intense pain.

“That’s all I could think about: Is this going to be the end of me? Am I just going to die here?” he recalled.
