LOS ANGELES (AP) - A homeless man who attacked an 11-year-old boy outside the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Thirty-three-year-old Raul Ocampo was sentenced Thursday after pleading no contest to child abuse.

The boy was on a school field trip when he was attacked outside the downtown concert hall last December.

Prosecutors say Ocampo put the fifth-grader in a chokehold and punctured his neck with a sharpened key.

Security guards quickly intervened and the boy had only minor cuts.
