Pittsfield man gets prison time for attacking teen

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Pittsfield man who stole $5 and a cell phone during an armed attack on a teenage cyclist has been sentenced to up four years in state prison.

Solomon Jones III was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and armed robbery stemming from the May 2012 attack.
 
Prosecutors said the 20-year-old was one of two men who jumped out of a car and attacked the 17-year-old boy, striking him in the head with a gun, punching him, slamming him to the ground and stabbing him in the leg.
 
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the victim also suffered a broken elbow and was hospitalized.
 
The assailants stole $5, a cell phone and keys.
 
The other attacker pleaded guilty in May.
