A Yuba City man has pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the stabbing of a man last May.
Harjiwan Mann, 36, admitted stabbing Mohammad Bath of Yuba City numerous times in the head and neck with a screwdriver on May 3, 2011, according to a Yolo County District Attorney's Office news release.
Woodland police arrested Mann outside Woodland Memorial Hospital, and during an interview with detectives, Mann admitted that he had been thinking about stabbing Bath because he was angry with him, officials said.
Paramedics took Bath to the Woodland hospital and he was then taken by air ambulance to UC Davis Medical Center. Officials said Bath suffered permanent injuries from the attack.
Mann also admitted that he had two prior strike convictions for offenses that included robbery and resisting arrest while using a knife, according to the news release. As part of the plea, he agreed to serve 25 years to life in prison in accordance with the Three Strikes Law.
