Andrew Michael Young, 19, is sentenced to 20 years in prison for stabbing a female victim multiple times last year.

A Colorado man was sentenced to 20 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to a violent stabbing attack on a jogger last May, reports said.

Andrew Michael Young, 19, said he took the woman so hard that he broke the knife, a report said.

“The horrific nature of this crime is overcome by the tremendous courage exhibited by the survivor in her nightmare for the police and to the respondent today in the Court,” district Attorney Bruce Brown said in a press release.
