Actor Nick Pasqual has been arrested and charged with stabbing his estranged girlfriend. According to prosecutors, Pasqual, 34, allegedly attempted to kill his ex-girlfriend by stabbing her multiple times on May 23 at her home in the Sunland neighborhood of Los Angeles.  Pasqual allegedly fled the scene and was later apprehended at a U.S.-Mexico border check point in Texas.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on Wednesday that Pasqual, 34, had been charged with one count of attempted murder, a count of first-degree residential burglary with a person present, and one count of injuring a spouse, cohabitant, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or child’s parent. The actor was detained at a check point in Sierra Blanca, Texas, and will be extradited to Los Angeles County, where he faces a maximum sentence of life in state prison if convicted.

District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement: “My thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with the victim in this horrific incident. Our office, including our Bureau of Victim Services, extends our support and resources to her as she embarks on the long and difficult journey of healing from both the physical and emotional trauma inflicted upon her. This heinous incident is a stark reminder of the dangers of domestic violence. We will ensure that the individual responsible for this egregious act is held accountable for their actions.”

The DA’s office did not identify the victim by name, but Entertainment Tonight reported that the victim is makeup artist Allie Shehorn. A GoFundMe account has been launched and verified by the platform to help cover Shehorn’s medical expenses. Shehorn, who recently filed a restraining order against Pasqual, was hospitalized with critical injuries. Friends said she has already gone through multiple surgeries and is expected to have an extended hospital stay as part of her recovery.

Pasqual has appeared in film and TV projects including “Rebel Moon: Part 1,” “Mean Girls” “How I Met Your Mother” and “Archive 81. ”
