A Westchester convict will spend a decade in prison after being found guilty by a jury of attempting to assault two men with a bat last year.

Robert Johnson, 33, of Mount Vernon, was found guilty by a Westchester County jury of two counts of attempted assault and one count of criminal possession of a weapon after he attacked two men with a bat in October.

This week, Johnson was sentenced to 10 years in state prison, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. announced.

Johnson was found guilty of attacking the two men at approximately 5:30 p.m. near the intersection of Eighth Avenue and Fifth Street in Mount Vernon on Oct. 6, 2018. The entire incident was caught on video by surveillance cameras. Scarpino noted that Johnson has two previous felony convictions.
