NEW YORK (AP) - A man who threatened to stab a store employee with a hypodermic needle during a robbery attempt has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Staten Island District Attorney Michael E. McMahon announced the sentencing of Frank Andolina on Wednesday.

He was previously convicted of attempted robbery for the January 2015 crime.

The CVS employee had tried to stop Andolina from stuffing a variety of cold medicines into a bag. Prosecutors say Andolina pulled the needle out of his pocket, then screamed that he had AIDS and would stab the worker.

He fled and was arrested later.
