    NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — A San Diego man charged with enticing a minor while posing as an actor from the “Twilight” movie series has pleaded not guilty.

    The Des Moines Register reports 33-year-old David LaVera entered a written plea of not guilty Monday. A hearing was scheduled for July 2.

    LaVera was arrested June 10 and charged with enticing a minor, carrying weapons and failure to have a valid driver’s license.

    A criminal complaint says he told a 14-year-old girl from Baxter he was an actor from the movie series. He touched her inappropriately and took her to his vehicle.

    Police also are investigating reports from another 14-year-old girl from Newton that LaVera touched her inappropriately.
