Nick Pasqual, who appeared in the television series “How I Met Your Mother,” is accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend 20 times and will be extradited to California after being arrested at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

According to his IMDb profile, Pasqual appeared in one episode of the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” in 2011, and more recently in the TV series “Archive 81” in 2022 and the movie “Poor Paul” in 2023.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on May 29 that Pasqual was charged with attempted murder and other charges stemming from the May 23 incident. Daily Mail reported on June 8 that Pasqual is in the Hudspeth County Jail in Texas awaiting extradition to California.

“Pasqual allegedly fled the scene and was detained at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas. He will be extradited to Los Angeles County where he will face charges for this crime,” the DA’s office wrote in the news release.

Entertainment Tonight reported that the woman who was stabbed is named Allie Shehorn. ET reported that Shehorn had gotten a restraining order against Pasqual, her ex-boyfriend, before the stabbing, accusing him of grabbing her by the neck and pushing her against the wall.

A GoFundMe page to help with Shehorn’s recovery also names her. It has raised more than $111,000.
