She was left critically injured and had to be hospitalized.

Pasqual fled the state. A warrant was issued for his arrest, and he was detained at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office said.

He has been charged with one count each of attempted murder, first-degree residential burglary with a person present, and injuring a spouse, cohabitant, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or child’s parent. A warrant was issued for his arrest after he allegedly went on the run.

On Thursday, he pled not guilty at a San Fernando courtroom after landing at LAX a day earlier. He was ordered to be held without bail, with his next court date set for July 16.

Prosecutors have said he faces a maximum possible sentence of life in state prison if convicted of all charges.

The victim, identified by the Los Angeles Times as make-up artist Allie Shehorn, had a restraining order filed against Pasqual at the time.

Shehorn has worked as a makeup artist on the films Mean Girls, Babylon and Rebel Moon.
