A Reseda man faces 24 felony counts in connection with a string of armed robberies in the West San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.

Holman pleaded not guilty yesterday in case PA085337 and is due back on Jan. 7 in Department S of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, San Fernando Branch.

According to the criminal complaint, the defendant robbed employees at more than a dozen locations between July 7, 2014 and Dec. 20. The locations included various fast food restaurants and gas stations, the prosecutor said.

During a Dec. 13 robbery, Holman allegedly forced a store clerk back inside the business so he could rob him, the prosecutor added.
