ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A man charged in a February attack on a man walking near the Linthicum light rail station has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

An Anne Arundel County judge on Wednesday also ordered Dana Patrick West, 19, not be found anywhere within a mile of any light rail station anywhere in the state while on five years’ probation after his release.

Prosecutors say West and his 15-year-old brother beat a 59-year-old man walking along the Baltimore-Annapolis trail so severely that the man suffered a broken nose, eye socket and cheekbone, three broken vertebrae and a fractured rib.

The attack generated calls to shut down the Linthicum light rail station, but officials never learned whether the two teenagers used the light rail to get to Linthicum.
