Violent home invader pleads guilty

A man who broke into an Esquimalt home and stabbed a woman inside when he was a teenager, pled guilty in court Monday.

Alexander Vince Escobar was 18 when he slashed an artery and nerve in the leg of a newlywed woman living on Anderson Road on Sept. 9, 2009.

Her injuries are described as life-altering.

Escobar ran off after the invasion and attack, but was arrested the following day. He was charged with aggravated assault, robbery and break and enter.

Escobar, now 20, will be sentenced June 17.
