BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings man charged with assaulting four women over the past six months, causing injuries that required medical treatment, has pleaded not guilty to eight felony assault charges.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1swRbJ0 ) 22-year-old Todd Michael Johnson entered his pleas Thursday. He appeared before a District Judge via video from the Yellowstone County jail, where he is being held on $225,000 bail. Prosecutors allege Johnson punched and kicked the women or hit them with a barbell, frying pan or the butt of a gun. One woman was hospitalized for six days with a traumatic brain injury.

Johnson was stabbed in the neck by one of the alleged victims on Sept. 6.

He has at least three prior domestic assault convictions while two cases were dismissed in 2011, including one alleging he assaulted his mother.
