PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man who admitted assaulting another man last year on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange has sentenced 34-year-old Dathan Little Wounded to 28 months in federal custody, followed by two years of supervised release. The Eagle Butte man earlier pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities say Little Wounded assaulted the victim on March 2 outside an apartment complex in Eagle Butte. Authorities say Little Wounded punched and kicked the man several times in the face and abdomen, leaving him with a wound near the left eye area that required stitches.

Little Wounded is now under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
