Riverside, CA: Suicidal man sentenced for attempted murder of California Highway Patrol Officer who saved his life.

A man who attempted to jump off an overpass in October 2012 is heading to jail for attempted murder of a California Highway Patrol Officer who was stabbed in the eye as the California Highway Patrol Officer tried to save his life and kept the man from attempting to jump from an overpass.

On Friday, July 31st, 2015, 48 year old Javier Hernandez of Riverside, California was sentenced to 18 years to life by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Michelle Levine.

On Thursday, October 25th, 2012, California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem responded to a call of a possibly suicidal man on the La Sierra Avenue overpass above the State Route 91 (91 Freeway) in Riverside, California.

The man, later identified by authorities as Javier Hernandez, spotted the patrol car and climbed onto the overpass fence.

California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem, worried the man could potentially killing himself and endangering motorists, grabbed the leg of Javier Hernandez in an effort to prevent that from happening.

But, Javier Hernandez had a knife on him and reportedly slashed or stabbed California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem numerous times including a stab wound to his right eye which blinded him.

California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem continued to hold onto the man so he couldn’t climb over the fence, still trying to save his life, until several Good Samaritans, including off duty Riverside Police Department Officer Nathan Asbury and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant John Walker, came to help California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem.

Javier Hernandez, who also goes by Javier Hernandez Rios, was ultimately taken into police custody.

The incident left California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem partially blind.

The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office filed numerous charges against Javier Hernandez, including attempted murder with the enhancement that the victim is a peace officer.

On Wednesday, March 11th, 2015, a Superior Court Jury found Javier Hernandez guilty of several felonies including mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and assault with a deadly weapon likely to cause great bodily injury against the Good Samaritans, but a jury was unable to agree on a verdict on the attempted murder count.

The jury was reportedly deadlocked 10 to 2 in favor of guilty on the attempted murder of the peace officer.

The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office then retried that charge and on Friday, June 26th, 2015, another jury found Javier Hernandez guilty of that count of attempted murder.

California Highway Patrol Officer Dane Norem spoke for the first time since the incident to Tony Shin, NBC affiliate KNBC Channel 4 News Reporter, about the knife attack that nearly blinded him as he tried to save the man’s life.
