A man convicted of stabbing another man with a screwdriver during a San Ysidro street robbery was sentenced Wednesday to 17 years in state prison.

In August, a Chula Vista jury found Eduardo Hernandez Oliveros, 24, guilty of attempted murder, robbery and vandalism charges in connection with the Sept. 17, 2020, stabbing.

Police said the victim was using his cellphone just before 7:30 a.m. on East San Ysidro Boulevard near Border Village Road when Oliveros confronted him on the street and asked to use the phone.

Before the victim could react, Oliveros snatched the phone out of his hand and took off, police said.

Prosecutors said the victim chased Oliveros down and was stabbed in the face and neck during a subsequent struggle.

The victim was hospitalized with serious injuries.

Bystanders called police, who responded and arrested Oliveros, who “admitted he was trying to kill the victim,” according to police.
