PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A bicycle thief who partially disemboweled a Portland man has been sentenced to 17 years and four months in prison.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1yEu5tv ) Andrey Khukhryanskiy was given the sentence on Friday. A jury two months ago convicted the 26-year-old Khukhryanskiy (‘kooka-RAHN-ski’) on ten counts, including robbery and first-degree assault for slashing open the other man’s abdomen, causing his intestines to spill out.

Prosecutors said Khukhryanskiy was stealing a bike in June 2014 when the victim, Robert Farris, confronted him. Khukhryanskiy then bashed open another man’s head so brutally it required staples to close.

Prosecutors said he was on a meth-fueled rampage and has a history of drug abuse, violence and a diagnosis of personality disorder.

Khukhryanskiy’s attorney said his client was abandoned and abused as a child.
