Henderson was being charged with armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He changed his plea to guilty at the beginning of his trial in October of this year.
The victim, who revealed his name to News Channel 5 in an interview after the attack, is Tom Spencer.
According to the Alexandria Police Department and Spencer, Spencer left his neighbor's home on Albert Street to walk two blocks to his own home when Henderson grabbed him by the neck and held a gun to his head.
Spencer managed to break free and made it to his home, but Henderson followed him.
"Please don't kill me," Spencer told us he told Henderson as he pulled out his wallet. "Take this, you can have it. He took it at that point and that is when he took off running."
A neighbor called police and Henderson was tracked down shortly after.
