At least he did not call his lost cell phone in hopes of getting it back like Sean Conners
A Pacific Grove man stabbed by a homeowner who interrupted him during a burglary will be sentenced to 34 years and eight months in prison, prosecutors said Monday.
Raymond Gutosky, 57, pleaded guilty on Friday to burglary charges after having two previous burglary convictions in Los Angeles, officials said.
Around 9 a.m. on July 11, 2013, Gutosky entered a home after he watched the homeowner and his wife drive away.
The owner returned about 10 minutes later and found Gutosky stealing his wife’s jewelry. Armed with a knife, the owner ordered Gutosky to stay until police arrived.
But Gutosky fought back and was “pummeling” his victim, prosecutors said, until the owner stabbed Gutosky, severely wounding him.
Gutosky stumbled outside, got into a car and drove away, leaving behind his cell phone, which he likely lost during the struggle, officials said.
