A homeless man has denied attacking and threatening to kill NCIS actress Pauley Perrette outside her Hollywood home.

David Merck, 45, is charged with false imprisonment by violence and making a criminal threat. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

Perrette, 46, who plays Abby Sciuto in the US hit TV series, said a man she described as psychotic and homeless repeatedly punched her in the face and threatened to kill her last Thursday.

A friend tracked down and followed the man until police arrived, she said.
