WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - A man accused of stabbing a Worcester bus driver in the face last week was held without bail after appearing in Court Monday.

Dashaun Stokes-SIms, 28, pleaded not guilty to several charges including assault with intent to murder. He will be back in court Friday for a dangerousness hearing.

Prosecutors say Stokes-Sims stabbed a Worcester Regional Transit Authority bus driver several times last week, and the driver said he needed more than 100 stitches in his face and hand.
