Man sentenced to nine years behind bars for brutal attack in Concord
Concord, California – Prosecutors said Monday that a man was sentenced to nine years in jail for brutally attacking an elderly victim at a dog park in Concord.
Noah Harris, 42, was sentenced Friday by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office for cutting the unnamed victim’s neck with a box cutter during a verbal altercation on May 27.
Harris had thrown a rock at the victim’s car as the victim drove into the park, which prompted the two to exchange words. The DA’s office said Harris approached the victim in his car and threatened his life multiple times, yelling at the victim, “Do you want to die today?”
A witness to the attack told police Harris also tried to spit on the victim.
In September, Harris was convicted of five felonies related to the attack, including attempted murder, elder abuse and causing great bodily injury.
