A man accused of sneakily snipping a fellow bus passenger's hair as he sat behind her New Year's Eve is a suspect in a number of similar incidents, a prosecutor said.

Jared Weston Walter pleaded not guilty Monday in Multnomah County Circuit Court to third-degree robbery, interfering with public transit, second-degree disorderly conduct and harassment.

During the hearing, Deputy District Attorney Chuck French said the 22-year-old is a suspect in other incidents in which women riders have either had their hair cut or glued on TriMet buses.

TriMet spokeswoman Bekki Witt says three such cases have been reported in recent weeks.

The Oregonian reported that Walter has an outstanding warrant on an assault charge in King County, Wash., in connection with a hair-gluing incident.
