A prosecutor says that a man who attacked a security officer at an Austin grocery store with a knife after stealing a tuna sandwich has been sentenced to 70 years in prison.

A Travis County jury sentenced 41-year-old Larry Dayries on Wednesday after finding him guilty of aggravated robbery.

Prosecutor Christopher Baugh says Dayries has been convicted of offenses including burglary and theft, and has been to prison several times before in Texas and Louisiana.

He says that as a habitual felon, Dayries faced a minimum of 25 years in prison and a maximum of life.

Baugh tells the Austin American-Statesman that Dayries swiped at a loss prevention officer at a Whole Foods with a knife after the officer confronted him in the parking lot.
