A Modesto man charged with abusing his girlfriend in La Honda pleaded not guilty to all charges in San Mateo County Superior Court on Thursday. 

On Oct. 28, San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies say a cyclist reported a man later identified as Jason Hewitt, 34, yelling hysterically and pounding on the chest of his girlfriend, who was unconscious on the ground. They were found on Alpine Road near Mindego Trail, and both reportedly had blood on them.
