TAUNTON, Mass. (WLNE) — A man was sentenced to state prison after being convicted of a stabbing in Taunton as well as violating his probation, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office said 33-year-old Ryan O’Day pled guilty to assault and battery and armed carjacking charges in Fall River Superior Court last week.

Prosecutors said O’Day, of Bridgewater, went up to a man at a Sunoco gas station and started a fight over a woman on July 7, 2019.

Video surveillance shows O’Day pull the man out of his car and stab him multiple times.

He then got into the man’s car and drove off.

The man was not seriously injured.

Authorities said O’Day came back when police arrived to try and tell his side of the story, which did not match what was caught on camera.

At the time, O’Day was out on probation out of Brockton after being convicted for domestic assault and battery and strangulation.

He was sentenced to three to four years for the stabbing and an additional 18 months for violating his probation.
