A Greer man was sentenced to five years in prison Tuesday after admitting to a stabbing in downtown Greenville last year.

Richard Williams Jr., 34, pleaded guilty to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

The stabbing happened June 8, 2011, near the intersection of Main and Coffee streets.

Prosecutors said evidence showed that Williams got into an argument with another man, pulled out a knife, chased the man down and stabbed him in the back. He was arrested three days later.

Williams must serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
