SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A man convicted of attacking five women in a Southern California crime spree has been sentenced to more than 100 years in state prison.

Thirty-six-year-old Ulises Omar De la Torre of Buena Park was sentenced Thursday for crimes ranging from burglary to torture, kidnapping and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say he intended to commit sex crimes when he attacked five women over the course of several hours on Jan. 16, 2014 in Anaheim and Garden Grove.

Authorities say De La Torre beat up and tried to kidnap one woman as she walked home from work, stabbed another woman after entering her home and attacked and stabbed two other women in an Anaheim hotel.

A fifth woman was punched and knocked down while jogging in Garden Grove.
