Woman arrested in vehicular attack on security guard pleads not guilty 

Lataya Robinson, the woman accused of attempted murder after allegedly ramming a Bayview security guard with a vehicle, pleaded not guilty Wednesday, according to Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian.

Robinson, 27, of San Francisco, faces 13 felony charges and one misdemeanor charge in total, Bastian said. She is charged with three counts of attempted murder, one count of aggravated mayhem, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon - the vehicle being the weapon, one count of robbery, one count of criminal threats, one count of driving under the influence causing great bodily injury, two counts of felony vandalism and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.

Robinson was arrested April 12 after a confrontation with a 43-year-old security guard of a residential complex in the 2000 block of McKinnon Avenue.

After advising Robinson the person she was looking for at the building wasn't there and that she was not welcome there, she reportedly became belligerent and threatened to kill the security guard. When the guard went to call police, she snatched his cellphone and threw it out into the street.

When he went to retrieve his phone, Robinson is alleged to have tried to strike him with a vehicle but missed. She then reportedly came back around again and struck him causing bodily injury. The guard was able to avoid a third attempt to hit him after he crawled between two parked cars, which were allegedly struck by Robinson before she drove into a concrete barrier.

When police arrived, she was still on the scene and arrested.

Robinson is currently in custody on $2 million bail and her next day in court will be May 15 for a pretrial conference, Bastian said.
