PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania jury has found a man guilty of all charges in the throat slashing of a Pittsburgh bicyclist.

The jury delivered the verdict Wednesday afternoon against 23-year-old Anthony Scholl of West Mifflin. He was convicted of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and reckless endangering in the September 2012 attack.

In an interview with authorities nearly two months after the slashing, Scholl said he became enraged following a traffic dispute with the cyclist and “was hearing loud voices in my head telling me to hurt him.”

Bicyclist Colin Albright testified that he was walking his bike up some steps when he was attacked from behind. He was stabbed multiple times and his throat was slashed, but recovered.

Sentencing is set for May 12.
