Truckee man gets 28 years to life for 2012 Safeway stabbing
January 17, 2014
TRUCKEE, Calif. — A local man was sentenced Friday to 28 years to life in state prison for his role in a near-fatal stabbing incident at a local grocery store 18 months ago.
Jayson Allen Maglaya of Truckee was convicted last month on one count of attempted murder and one count of assault with a deadly weapon in what the Nevada County District Attorney's office called a "brutal attack" on July 15, 2012, at the Safeway store on Donner Pass Road in Truckee.
Maglaya, 35, reportedly snuck up behind a 33-year-old man and stabbed him twice with a sharp object near the grocery store's deli counter after the two got into a physical altercation.
Maglaya fled the scene prior to police arrival, but was eventually arrested without incident in the Glenshire subdivision of Truckee, near his residence.
According to a Friday statement from the DA's office, most of the attack was captured on the store's security video. The victim suffered injuries to his chest, neck and face.
The conviction counted for Maglaya's third strike, according to the California three strikes law.
According to previous reports, the second strike came in early 2003, when Maglaya was sentenced to seven years in prison for attempted first-degree burglary for trying to enter an occupied home in Glenshire in 2002.
He also was convicted in May 2001 of possession of stolen property and in March 1997 of first-degree burglary.
