SAN BERNARDINO- A man from Highland was sentenced to state prison, after being convicted of a 2014 knife attack which was perpetrated in Downtown Redlands.
34-year-old Cudberto Macias was convicted by a jury in May 2016 of Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury. An allegation that Macias inflicted great bodily injury in the commission of the assault was also proven. The later charge created a strike for Macias.
In November 2014, an altercation was initiated by Macias after the 21-year-old victim and his female companion were walking together to a nearby financial institution, when Macias walked past the couple and bumped into the victim.
As the couple kept walking Macias turned around and yelled at the victim. The couple ignored Macias and at some point Macias swung from behind and hit the victim in the nose.
Blood gushed from the victim’s nose while he tried to defend himself from Macias. The victim was able to grab the hoodie that Macias was wearing and use it to bring Macias to the ground. The victim’s female companion started to scream for help and dialed 911. A citizen came to the victim’s aid and together they were able to subdue Macias until authorities arrived.
During the investigation, the police located a knife near the scene of the altercation. The victim unaware, during the altercation, had been stabbed in his lower back.
