Alvarado-Ventura fled from the bar back to his girlfriend's apartment. Around 4:15 a.m. his girlfriend arrived from work, noticed the injuries to her daughter and confronted Alvarado-Ventura. He then punched her and stabbed her multiple times. The woman was able to gather her children and leave the room. She then called the police. When they arrived, Alvarado-Ventura was asleep on the counch.
