A Pacoima man will spend 70 years in prison for a domestic violence attack on relatives of his former girlfriend.
According to prosecutors, the 23-year-old man broke into the Panorama City home of his former girlfriend’s mother. Once there, he stabbed three relatives including an 11-month-old baby. The man also attempted to attack a 3-year-old child in the home. Following the attack, he fled and triggered a high-speed police pursuit. The chase ended when the man crashed his car in Glendale. Following the crash in Glendale, the man held police at bay in a four-hour standoff.
Prosecutors charged the man with four counts of attempted murder, and assault with a deadly weapon. In addition, he faced two felony counts related to fleeing an officer. He also faced a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge.
