Actor Nick Pasqual accused of stabbing ex-girlfriend multiple times arrested at U.S.-Mexico border

Hollywood actor Nick Pasqual has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly stabbing his former girlfriend multiple times.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday that Pasqual, 34, was charged with one count of attempted murder, one count of first-degree residential burglary in the presence of a person and of one count of injury to a spouse, common-law partner, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or parent of the child. If convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum sentence of life in prison, authorities said.

The district attorney’s office has not identified the victim, but Entertainment Tonight reports that Pasqual is accused of stabbing makeup artist Allie Shehorn and that a GoFundMe has been started to cover Shehorn’s medical expenses.

Pasqual allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s Los Angeles home around 4:30 a.m. on May 23, the district attorney’s office said in a news release, and proceeded to stab her “multiple times.” Shehorn, who had recently filed a restraining order against Pasqual, was hospitalized with serious injuries.

The GoFundMe said the makeup artist was “fighting for her life” after being hospitalized. Shehorn was in the intensive care unit for several days, according to the fundraiser, and underwent several surgeries, including a procedure to repair severed tendons in his right arm and an operation to close wounds in his neck.

“No one deserves to go through such a traumatic experience, especially someone as compassionate and caring as Allie,” the GoFundMe page reads.

Pasqual reportedly fled the city after being stabbed. An arrest warrant was issued and he was arrested at a U.S.-Mexico border checkpoint in Texas, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Officials said Pasqual will be extradited to Los Angeles to face charges. No indictment date has yet been set, the prosecution said.

Los Angeles police continue to investigate the case, officials said.

Shehorn has done makeup for projects like Rebel Moon: Part 1, Mean Girls and Babylon, ET reports. Pasqual appeared in Rebel Moon: Part 1, as well as How I Met Your Mother and Archive 81, according to his IMDB page.

“My thoughts and deepest condolences go out to the victim of this horrific incident,” District Attorney George Gascón said in the press release. “Our office, including our Office of Victim Services, is providing support and resources as she embarks on the long and difficult journey of healing from the physical and emotional trauma inflicted on her. This heinous incident is a stark reminder of the dangers. of domestic violence. We will ensure that the person responsible for this egregious act is held accountable for their actions.
