MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio – The man who ran into traffic and was hit by a truck after allegedly stabbing three people pleaded not guilty Monday.

Matthew Cepik, 30, was charged with three counts of attempted murder, aggravated burglary, six counts of felonious assault and tampering with evidence.

Bond was set at $1 million and he is to have no contact with the victims or the victims’ families.

Cepik is accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend, her mother and another family member at a home on Golden Gate Boulevard in Mayfield Heights last week.

Police said after the attack, Cepik drove off, ditched his car in Solon, and ran into traffic where he was hit.

The charges came Thursday after he was released from the hospital.

The first pretrial hearing was set for Sept. 16 at 9 a.m.
