Nick Pasqual, actor, charged knife attack

Nick Pasqual, an actor, has been charged with an alleged knife attack on his ex-girlfriend, makeup artist Allie Shehorn.

Actor Nick Pasqual has been charged with repeatedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend, Allie Shehorn, a Hollywood special effects makeup artist.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office charged Pasqual with attempted murder, first-degree house burglary with a person present, and harming a spouse, cohabitant, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend, or child’s parent. According to a news release on the office’s website, if convicted, he may face up to life in state prison.

“My thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with the victim of this horrific incident,” District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement. “Our office, including our Bureau of Victim Services, provides its assistance and resources to her as she begins the long and difficult process of recovery from both the physical and mental damage perpetrated on her. This horrible act serves as a clear reminder of the consequences of domestic violence. We will ensure that the person guilty for this heinous conduct is held accountable.”

The allegations against Pasqual come a week after Shehorn was discovered bleeding inside her home on May 23 after being stabbed more than 20 times, according to KTLA. She was admitted to a local hospital’s intensive care unit and discharged a few days later. She remains hospitalized.

The 35-year-old had obtained a restraining order against the actor, who had been released from jail just days before she was attacked.

“I found her and had to go into the bedroom where the incident occurred. “That wasn’t a pretty sight,” Shehorn’s friend Christine White told KTLA after the attack. “This is not something that should happen to anyone. “You don’t believe this will ever happen to you.”

Her friends set up a GoFundMe campaign to assist her raise the funds she’ll need to cover her hospital fees, which include her extended stay, operations, therapies, and continuous care during her rehabilitation.
