Eduardo Hernandez Oliveros, 24, was sentenced to 17 years in state prison on Wednesday for stabbing another man with a screwdriver during a San Ysidro street robbery. 

A Chula Vista jury found Oliveros guilty last summer for attempted murder, robbery, and vandalism charges in connection with Sept. 17, 2020, stabbing.

According to police, the victim was using his phone just before 7:30 a.m. in the 600 block of East San Ysidro Boulevard when Oliveros confronted him on the street and asked to use the phone. The assailant took the phone out of the victim's hand before there was any time for a reaction. 

According to prosecutors, the victim chased Oliveros down, was stabbed in the face and neck during a subsequent struggle, and was hospitalized with severe injuries. 

According to the San Diego Police Department, bystanders called police, who responded and arrested Oliveros, who "admitted he was trying to kill the victim."
